Historical NoteReturn to Top

East Carbon High School was initially part of Dragerton before the incorporation of Dragerton and Columbia in 1973 that created East Carbon City. The high school, however, held the name from 1958 when the name and Viking mascot were appointed to the school. It remained one of the major high schools of Carbon County until 2005 when it was torn down and replaced by Bruin Point Elementary.
