Carrie Stern Elementary School
The Georgian Revival style elementary school completed September 9, 1939 was described that year as a “school of tomorrow” by the Democrat-Times. The interior was primarily Art Deco and Streamlined Moderne (MDAH) to reflect modern ideas of teaching. Funded by the city and PWA funds, estimated cost was $151,000.
