 Chase Ave. School

   The Salmon P. Chase Elementary School opened in 1888 at 1615 Chase Ave. This school had no lunchroom so children ate on benches in the hallway or walked home. Vacated in 1979, it has now been converted into condominiums as can be seen in the last photograph above.

1927 Building

   The 1st James A. Garfield Public School, seen in the 1st row above, was erected in 1896. Located at 1905 Elmore Street it was replaced in 1927 with the building in the 2nd row. It was closed in 1979 due to low enrollment and everything is now apartments.



   Walnut Hills High School began as a 4 year program (grades 9 thru 12) that expanded to a 6 year program (grades 7 thru 12) in 1919 when it became a college preparatory school. This change proved very popular, and in 1931, the school moved to the 24 acre site on Victory Parkway. The old building remained a school that was renamed the Burdett School that was closed in 1979. The building has now been renovated (2005) and is now the Schoolhouse Lofts. The 2nd photograph in the 2nd row shows a fire that occurred in 1963. A couple of alumni of Walnut Hills High School are Theda Bara , Jerry Rubin.

   With an increasing African American population in Walnut Hills, Reverend Dangerfield Early began a school for the children in his home in 1858. When Walnut Hills became part of Cincinnati in 1870, the school came under the jurisdiction of the Cincinnati Colored School System in 1870 and a new building was built in 1872. It was called the Elmwood Avenue School. In 1887 Ohio's Brown-Arnett Bill called for the phasing out of segregated schools. In an attempt to circumvent integration, in 1902 the name of the school was changed to Douglass Elementary School, named for the famous writer and abolitionist, Frederick Douglass. The school ostensibly was open to any child in Cincinnati, but in reality became a magnet school for African American children. It was hoped that in an environment where there was no racial prejudice and an all African American faculty, the children would be able to learn unhindered by bigotry. The school indeed became a beacon for African American children, and many notable citizens including Wilber A. Page, minister of the Union Baptist Church, DeHart Hubbard, the first African American to win a gold medal in the 1924 Olympics (broad jump), and Jennie D. Porter, a teacher at Douglass who went on to found Harriet Beecher Stowe school attended. I put up the back of the 4th card because it was produced by a company that I did not know even existed. It was produced by the National Negro Post Card Co., Cincinnati Ohio. I will do some research and, hopefully find more information. (I am unable to locate any information on this Co. Can anyone help?)

Harriet Beecher Stowe School

   Harriet Beecher Stowe School  is located at 635 West Seventh St. Opened in 1923 as an all black jr. high school. The school was started by Jennie Davis Porter who was it's principal until her death in July 1936 at the age of 60. She started out as a teacher at the Douglass school above and after the flood in 1911 left the families of black children in the West End homeless and with no school, opened a private kindergarten. It quickly outgrew its space and in 1914 a new public school started and was named after the author of "Uncle Tom's Cabin", Harriet Beecher Stowe. Porter became its principal for the next 22 years. Even though Porter had been teaching for two decades she had never gotten any advanced degrees so, in 1919, she enrolled at U.C. where she earned a bachelor's degree in education in 1923, a master's in 1925, and then became the first African-American to receive a doctorate from UC in 1928.
   The late Mayor of Cincinnati Theodore M Berry was a student. The construction of I-75 and all the associated roads around it forced the school to close. The building is now called Broadcast Center (last image) and houses studios for WXIX-WCVX-WDJO-WKRC-FOX-19.


The schools from this point on will be listed in alphabetical order. (roughly)
 It was the only way I could get any order from this chaos.
