North Central Avenue - Grade School

The North Central School Grades 1 - 4 occupied this lot for many years.

It was originally the Stone College Building.  
In 1791 John Canon donated this lot to Canonsburg Academy, which in 1802 was chartered as Jefferson College. 

The original stone college building was bought by the borough in 1843 and demolished to build a town hall.

This photo of the North Central School was taken December 18, 1966 when the building was being torn down.

Today sadly, it's a school parking lot.
