Schools 2



   The Allison Elementary building was constructed in 1896 at Allison Ave.& Weyer St. In 1901 the school opened a high school (building on right) in an old building that was already on the property. In 1914 the elementary school took over the high school for extra classroom space when the high school moved into a new building on Sherman Ave. (see below). The old house burned in 1917 and so a new 12-room structure was built for the elementary school at Allison Ave. & Courtland Ave..

It closed in 1977. The Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes is seen in the foreground of the 2nd card while in the distance can be seen the statue of Our Lady of Grace.

   The Hyde Park School located at 3401 Observatory Avenue has been at this location since 1823. In that year the 2 room Mornington School was erected on the 16 acres of land that had been purchased. Changes were made over the years until it looked like what you see in the 1st image below. Finally, in 1902, the school you see in the next 2 rows was built. Because of increased attendance, by 1925, more room was needed and so in 1927 an addition to the school was completed and can be seen in the 4th row below.
