THE HI YURY
The History of Barnum goes Way back to 1912, when Horace Barnum, one of the village
blacksmiths, sold five acres of his farm at the corner of what is now Frank and Purdy streets. The land
was to be used for a new elementary building, including kindergarten through the eighth grade.
Birmingham was first settled in 1815 by John Hunter. The school system was started in 1834, the
first school being a rented log cabin. Horace Barnum owned an eleven acre farm and was also a village
commissioner. In 1912 Barnum was constructed. The first site was the 'old wing," or "tower," the
part inside the double doors on the north side of the building. In 1930 the largest addition was made.
This included the entire first and second floors to the locker rooms and room 217. This was the year
that Barnum became a junior high school for this section of town - in fact, for the whole town until
Derby was built in 1961.
In April 1954, the cafeteria, shop, and music room 240 were added. Prior to this, students had
gotten their lunches in the home economics department and had eaten in the gymnasium. The science
wing was added in 1963, and our latest expansion. the artlEnglish wing was completed in 1970.
Barnum began its yearbook way back and it has been called a number of names, such as: 'The
Mapletonian' and today's 'Cnugarf
