It’s back to school time again for Niagara-on-the-Lake students. Here’s a photograph of students in front of the former kindergarten room at 267 Davey St. Kindergarten started in Canada in 1882 and was likely in NOTL by the turn of the century. This building is located in what could be called the educational block in town. In 1854, John Crooks sold lot 39, the block of Castlereagh, King, Davy and Platoff streets, to the town for “uses of common schools and grammar Schools in the town of Niagara forever.” Shortly afterward, the school buildings, including this one, were built for the community. Although most of the school buildings still stand, the only remaining educational facility on the block is the Niagara-on-the-Lake Museum, which offers educational exhibitions and programs in the former high school building. All the best for your first day of school, kids.
