A f t' , F .A fje lx -oy, . xtxrvi 1 4 History of the Public Schools The tirst school building was a small, one-roomed, log? house which stood on Division Street near lilac-kburn Avenue. lt was very crudely built and contained only one window. which was nothing! but a small opening in the logs covered with oiled paper. There were only a few pupils, some ol' them coming only part of the year, A llr. Scott was the first teacher. In 1818, a log' house was built near the site of the first school, and this building was used both as a. church and a public school. Mr. Robert MeAuley succeeded Mr. Scott as teacher and was the lirst one to teach in the old. log church. The third school house in the town was a small, one-story, brick building on the corner ot' Centennial Avenue and Broad Street. lt was used as at school for many years. and a number of thc older people of our town remember it as the place where the foundation for their education was laid. One of the most successful and best liked teachers of the school was Mr. James Mi. Loughridge. In 1862 four rooms were erected at the corner of Thorn and Broad Streets, where the present school building' stands. In 1878 four rooms were added and four years later it was found necessary to build four more, lflilkltltll' a building of twelve rooms. Un the morning! of Feb. 1, 18513 this structure was destroyed by tire. The present building was erected in 18513 and 1894, and was dedicated on June 5, 1894. At the time of its erection it was one of the finest school buildings in the country. In 151125 very extensive repairs were made on the building, and in thc same year the pavilion was built. In 1915 the pavilion was enclosed so that the children might have some place for recreation in bad weather. The number of students increased so rapidly that in the fall of 1917 it was necessary to move the kindergarten to the Merz building on Beaver Street, where it has been ever since. When the present building: was built, it was tlioiigrltt that it was large enough to accommodate the pupils for a great many years to come. But, partly because of the great number ot' out-of-town pupils, the number of students has increased so that it is almost impossible to take care of them. With the removal of the library to its own building' this summer. two more rooms will be available, but this will only be a. small help. What is needed is an up-to-date high school building, and although the prospects do not look very bright, we hope to have one in the near future. Four
