Leonard School (Lawrence, MA)

leonard1The Leonard School was built in 1926 at a cost of $313,297. When the Leonard School was occupied it allowed the closing of the Harrington, the Newbury Street, and the Walton Schools. It was built to accommodate 1190 pupils including 120 kindergartners. The three story building was constructed of red brick with limestone trim and contained 26 classrooms. It was named after James F. Leonard, a businessman and early mayor of the city. The Leonard School is still occupied at its location on Allen Street and has survived two floods the one in March 1936 that you see in this photograph and the one in May of 2006.
