Historic Preservation Watch List
Aldo Leopold School, Green Bay
SAVED-The original St. Joseph's Academy high school building in Green Bay has since been surrounded by a 1960s wing to the east and a 1970s gymnasium to the southwest. More recent construction started with a modern Phase 1 addition to the south. Phase 2 plans call for demolition of the original building to make room for more new construction on the crowded site.
