The Manayunk Primary School building held both the Primary and Grammar schools until 1893 when the Grammar school moved into a new building. This building is within the twenty-first section: "The boundaries of the Twenty-first Ward of the City of Philadelphia, which comprises the Twenty-first Section of the First School District of Pennsylvania, are School Lane and the Schuylkill River; School Lane to Township Line, to County Line, to the Schuylkill River," (Curtis, p. 369).
