This is a photo from 1975. This school, built in 1872, was converted into a factory in 1906. I don't know when it was demolished, perhaps when the Pride gas station was built.
This school was built in 1901, but by 1936, due to declining enrollment, it had been vacated as a school and turned into the offices for the city's welfare department. In 1940 it was turned into the South End Community Center. In 1977 the building was demolished and the Joseph P. Gentile Apartments, managed by the Springfield Housing Authority, were built in its place.
This school was an ungraded school, meaning that children of all ages were mixed together. It was used from 1899, when it was built, until the 1920's, when it was replaced in the neighborhood by the Bailet school. It was converted into the Pine Point Library and stood until 1970, when it burned down in a case of arson.
The Pynchon School was built in 1891, and was situated right around where East Columbus Avenue runs today. The 1910 city atlas suggests that it was used as a temporary municipal office building while the Municipal Group was under construction following the fire at the old city hall. In 1946 it was listed as an annex of the Homer Street School.
