Description

Black and white photograph of Carlisle School. The school was located at Carlisle Road (later renamed 42nd Street) and Speaker Road in Argentine. The name "Carlisle School" was taken from the road (the present 42nd St.) named for the Carlisle family who settled the area that is now on the s.w. corner of 42nd and Metropolitan. The Carlisle School was a one-room building for farm children of the area and had a small enrollment. The building was closed in 1931 due to the closure of the Sinclair Refining Company plant which decreased enrollment at the school. The remaining pupils were transferred to the Stanley Elementary School.
