Dorchester Illustration of the Day no. 1725 Glenway School

Dorchester Illustration of the Day no. 1725


Almost a year ago, we saw the photo of the Glenway School Annex and wondered where it might have been.  A study of the old maps indicates that the school occupied a lot of land on Blue Hill Avenue that goes through from Glenway Street to McLellan Street.  The Glenway School stood on the Glenway Street side of this lot from the 1880s until at least the 1930s.  The Endicott School, which still stands, was built in 1906 facing McLellan Street on the same lot behind the Glenway School.  The buildings co-existed until at least the 1930s.
