Edgington Lane School History

-from "A Collection About Ohio County Public Schools,"  Levering C. Bonar, 1978, pg. 80.

EDGINGTON LANE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL  -  Triadelphia District  -  1906-1977

This school occupies a half square. There was a small well kept lawn in front and an asphalt surfaced playground to the right, which was well provided with equipment and fenced to protect children from the busy street. The building is a two story, red brick structure, fireproof in walls and furnace room only. It was built in 1906 and formerly used for a high school. There were six classrooms, an office, rest room, and an auditorium on the first two floors above the ground. In the basement are located the furnace, two playrooms, two large toilet rooms, a workroom, and storage space. The classrooms  were lighted from both the left and rear, and the floors were maple. There was a belfry above the front double door entrance.
