Comments

This school was built in 1837. In 1867, the school was transferred to the Vaughan school building (Marlborough Street). The school building at Palmer Street was torn down and the Alexander Adaire School was built on this site in 1892. This building was within the the eighteenth section: "The boundaries of the Eighteenth Ward of the City of Philadelphia, which comprises the Eighteenth Section of the First School District of Pennsylvania, are Laurel Street and the Delaware River, to Frankford Avenue, Norris Street to the Aramingo Canal, to Lehigh Avenue to the Delaware River," (Curtis, p. 331).
