New Irving School/James Russell Lowell Elementary School
401 Maple Ave.     Built in 1916     Mediterranean Revival
Built on “Circus Hill”, the site of former circus grounds, this school originally had eight classrooms as well as domestic science and manual arts rooms and a gymnasium/auditorium.

Known first as the New Irving School, its name was changed to James Russell Lowell School at the request of area residents. In 1926 the school was expanded to meet ever increasing enrollment. The two new wings added 11 classrooms and several special purpose rooms. During the 1930's the school featured a nutrition room, a tuberculosis solarium, a full-time nurse and dental clinic.
