Primo Construction workers began to dismantle the landmark brick-walled entrance to the circa 1925 Forks High School the morning of Wednesday, June 15. Cream-colored terra cotta elements and bricks from the building are planned to be used to create a wall that will echo the look of the historic building. The wall is to be located at on the interior side of the entrance to the addition to Forks High School now under construction. 

A time capsule, placed during the construction of the building in 1925, is said to be located inside the walls of the structure.
