(Kaysville-AP) -- After 90 years, the original Davis High School building is coming down to make room for the new one.

Demolition on the building began yesterday. It's coming down so a new parking lot can be put in for the new high school, which opens in the fall.

School officials say the old building had lots of problems -- like wiring and plumbing.

Davis County's first high school was built in Kaysville because it was the county's geographic center. It has undergone 17 additions and remodeling projects, but portions of the first two-story school remain.

The demolition project won't be finished until later this week. Hauling away the debris will take a few weeks.
