Letter: Salem's storied School Street


It can be said that School Street earned its name. The North School later became the Pickering School. From 1866 to 1894, it stood on School Street in a new building at the site of the former North School.

Afterward, this building became the home of Cogswell School, a primary school well remembered by some of our senior citizens.

According to directory listings, the Pickman School stood on School Street from 1897 to 1961.

By the way, the brick building on School Street that once housed the Pickering and the Cogswell schools is still standing today — as condominiums.
