Marcy Street Grammar School Southbridge
- Marcy Street Grammar School Southbridge
Of Victorian brick design, reputedly "constructed according to the most approved methods of heating, ventilation and sanitation, at a cost of nearly $50,000...with seats for four hundred pupils, accommodating all public school pupils in the village classes above the fourth grade." The building was first occupied at the beginning of the school year in September, 1898. Details such as a Queen Anne style tower, a double arched entrance, with conical broach roof, two chimney stacks, and slate roof are on view. A U.S. flag billows from the tower. A rear view glimpse of Pine Street buildings is provided. This building was razed in 1962 to make way for a parking lot for the adjacent Mary E. Wells Middle School.
