Dedication Day - 1909
The top photo shows Brookline Elementary School on Dedication Day in June 1909. Brookline Elementary was built to ease the overcrowding at West Liberty School, which was Brookline's first public school. The photo below shows the new school building a couple months later in November 1909 after some snowy weather.
The school building has been remodeled and enlarged twice since 1909. Additions were built in 1911 and 1929. Other improvements have been made over the years. In 2009, the institution entered its 100th year with a celebration of both the history of the Brookline community and of Brookline Elementary School.
