Description

Black and white photo of Stowe Elementary School. Stowe was located at Second St. and Richmond Ave (also called Second and Virginia Ave., and some said the building was located on Walker Ave. near Fourth St.). Constructed in 1899 by Rose and Peterson Architechts, Stowe was named for the American writer Harriet Beecher Stowe. The school was constructed in 1899. There were only four rooms, four teachers for the eight grades that were housed in the building. The first principal of Stowe Elementary School was Mr. J. J. Base (who also taught classes). The other faculty members at that time were Miss Mary E. Porter, Miss Carrie Davis and Mrs. J. J. Thomas. The school was destroyed by fire in July 1968 and razed soon after.
