From New Hampshire Then And Now:

Here is the old Glen Street School in Farmington,N.H. about 1900. Built in 1889 it originally was comprised of two large rooms. One on upper level and one on the lower level. From 1890 to 1912 the school was used for the education of primary students and later the school added intermediate grades. In 1912 the two rooms were divided into four rooms. In 1923 the school population grew so much that a $5,000.00 addition was made. This school was closed down around 1960. After years of being used as a home base by local businesses, and a fair amount of neglect, the Glen Street School building in 1990 was torn down. Much of this information was taken from the Farmington,N.H. Historical Society website.
