1. How do I get on the
group email program?
We don't have one. Try using Facebook to meet classmates.
2. Where did you get that old map of "Vicinity
of St. Louis, 1883?" It was contributed to another web site
by Terry Harmon, Granite City, IL. I hope he does not mind if we use it
3. Where did
you find the bricks from the school? If
you were fortunate enough to be there when they tore it down, bricks
would be easy to find. The bricks were used to fill in the hole created
by the steps on the rear side of the school that went to a storage room.
The bricks may still be accessible.
4. What do you know about
Barth's Estate? Loretta has provided the
only information we know so far.
5. We see people have
loaned yearbooks. For what? The yearbooks have been scanned
and put on this website for download. We presently have 54, 55, 56, 57,
58, 59, 60, 61 and 62. The quality is identical to the
original except we have edited out any imperfections or blemishes. For
instance, if the yearbook cover has a scratch on it we edit it out.
We are seeking yearbooks before 1954 if they exist. Click on the
Year Book link.
6. Can you tell more
about the well kept old house on the pictures page? The
house at 212 Shumate in Maryland Heights according to the city hall is
the oldest house left standing in Maryland Hedights. It is about 200 ft from where the
school use to be, almost across the street from the old Legion Hall. The
house was built in 1904 the same year the Worlds Fair was held in St.
Louis, Missouri. The house is now owned by Ron Brown (Class of 1960) and
Jeanette (Hammock) Brown (Class of 1962).
7. Newer residents want
to know where the old school was located? Go to the
intersection of Dorset Road and Fee Fee. Go west one block and make a
right on Shumate. Take Shumate north to the end where it makes a left
hand turn. The area north of the intersection of Shumate and Harding is
where the school was located. The picture on our home page was taken
from the intersection of Shumate and Harding. The lower left picture on
our pictures page shows the gym
and the school next to each other. The Gym is still there. Pattonville
Heights Middle School is just to the north.
