Moran School Administration Building

Status: Still Standing

Year Listed: 2010

Location: Kitsap County

Constructed in 1918 for the Moran School for Boys, the building originally housed an auditorium/theater, classrooms, science labs, a library and dormitories. After the school closed in 1933, the property re-opened five years later as the Puget Sound Naval Academy, a military prep school that operated until 1951. Although the other remaining school building was converted for use as a nursing home, this structure has stood empty save for a brief transformation into a movie set in 2000. Citing the high costs of rehabilitation and the lack of a viable use for the structure, the owner of the historic school has sought a demolition permit from the City of Bainbridge Island to remove the Administration Building.
