As part of its ongoing mission to recognize Concord's historic sites, the Concord Historical Society installed a landmark plaque at Mt. Diablo High School last week.
The society has installed multiple plaques around town, most recently, one dedicating the Brubeck House, where jazz great Dave Brubeck was raised.
The plaque reads:
"Mt. Diablo High School
Concord Historical Landmark
Built in 1905
Opened in 1905 on 3-1/2 acres donated in 1901 by A.W. Maltby, it was first known as Mt. Diablo Union High School. It initially served 12 primary school districts from West Pittsburg to Moraga. For years, students commuted daily to their classes via the Sacramento-Northern Electric train. Separate classroom, shop, and gymnasium buildings were added to this campus during the early years.
