Emerson School History

Emerson School historians Margaret Cass and Connie Kuckuk will share memories and more.

When Emerson Elementary School opened in 1920, the original building featured six rooms on the first and second floors and four rooms in the basement, serving students in kindergarten through ninth grade. The boys’ gymnasium was added in about 1922. Another addition in 1925 completed the building we know today. Emerson is the second oldest operating public elementary school in Madison.

Bring your stories of Emerson School to share at our November meeting.

Join us at the Goodman Community Center, 149 Waubesa Street, on Saturday November 19 from 2–4pm. $2 suggested donation.
