Changes to Fresno High campus look good (photo update)

I wasn’t familiar with Fresno High until P de Q opened a couple of years ago across the street. They’re a bakery that makes delicious Brazilian cheese bread, or Pao de Queijo. Aside from enjoying delicious bread, visiting the bakery introduced me to Fresno High, which has a beautiful main building. I also noticed major construction underway.

The project involved blowing up two bunker buildings, that ruin the architecture, and build new ones off to the side in a complementary architectural style. The bunkers used to block the view of the historic building. Click to read more!

Right before Christmas, I set out to buy three dozen Pão de Queijos (Brazilian cheese bread) to make for the family, and bought some at P*de*Q on Echo Ave (where else?). The store is located across from Fresno High, so I obviously noticed some major construction going on.  (The store is just around the corner from the Dusty Buns retail location by the way, both are highly recommended).

Fresno High is home to a beautiful older building (Royce Hall) that actually looks like what I would imagine a decent high school to be. It’s elegant, and the campus is dense. Just look at this thing, I can hear the ringing school bell in my head just from the picture. Click to read more!
