In front of the Victor High School building in 1936-37 classmates pose for a photo. The school would burn in 1940, the worst fire in the town’s history to that date. 

April 13, 1940, was not a Friday, but it could have been. That’s the date of what some have described as Victor’s most disastrous fire.

“The worst fire and Victor’s greatest single economic loss was the limestone school building fire in 1940,” according to a Victor history compilation by Michael Holmes.
