Miss Carroll School, 1897-2010

Newton Free Library

The City of Newton owns a wealth of historic materials that speak to the community's social, cultural, and governmental past. These materials reflect the civic life of and provide insight into Newton from the 19th through the early 20th century, a time when Newton was transforming from agriculture to industry and becoming a suburban Boston residential community. Presented here are photographs relating to the Miss Carroll School of West Newton (1884-1952) including a portrait of Miss Kate Carroll founder of the Carroll School, group photographs of teachers and students, and exteriors of both the Temple Street and Prince Street school houses.
