Fractional District #1/Buck


Photo by Sarah Hultmark, c. 1981, History Room Photo File P-1263.

Location: Fractional District #1 - Section 35, northwest corner of N Avenue and 33rd Street.

Teacher entries for this school after the 1936-37 school year are ambiguous. It appears that this district may have been split, one part staying in the old school and the other becoming part of the Comstock graded system.
