St Edwards School

  • Since 1885, St. Edward's School has been conducted in three different buildings.
  • Classes at first were conducted in the building which was divided into church, school, and parsonage.
  • In 1924, the old church building was moved about 80 feet, on the Ferry Steet side of the church property, and remodeled to serve as school and parish hall.
  • It served until the present school was dedicated in 1955.
  • An annex containing a large gymnasium and additional classrooms was added in 1962. Peak enrollment of 360 pupils was in 1965-1972.
