Fairhill School (1875 - 1879)

Comments

The school was the original located on Indiana Avenue from 1875-1879 until it became dilapidated and the school moved to a dwelling-house on Fairhill and Cambria Streets from 1879 to 1887. Then in 1887 a school building was erected and opened on Marshall Street. This building was within the thirty-third section: "The boundaries of the Thirty-third Ward of the City of Philadelphia, which comprises the Thirty-third Section of the First School District of Pennsylvania, are Lehigh and Kensington Avenues, Frankford and Wingohocking Creeks, Bristol Township Line, Germantown Avenue and Lehigh Avenue," (Curtis, p. 509).
