The Central High School building on Seventh St. in Devils Lake, North Dakota was built in 1936. Now known as Central Middle School, it was designed by Devils Lake architect John Marshall in Art Deco style. The school was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 2003.
According to its NRHP nomination, the school "is a locally prominent landmark that derives its significance from two principal areas: Education and Architecture...for its role in the development of the Devils Lake School System [and]...for being an excellent and rare example of a high architectural style, Art Deco, in Devils Lake.":7
It includes a 1964-installed central clock system that rings bells and controls clocks in all classrooms, replacing usage of a pendulum-regulated, original, 1936 clock, which remains in place in a basement below the main office.:10
