Flower Hill Elementary School (former) Improvements – Port Washington NY

Description

Now part of the Carrie Palmer Weber Middle School complex, what was then known as the Flower Hill Elementary School in Port Washington, New York was improved by the federal Work Projects Administration during the 1930s.  One modest project undertaken in 1938 involved repairs to the building’s walls, ceilings, and plastering. Other schools in Port Washington were similarly improved.

WPA Official Project No. 665-21-2-219.

    I am looking for more information detailing the history of Flower Hill Elementary in Port Washington, particularly the years 1959-61.

      That’s slightly outside our purview–perhaps someone at the school can help.

    I lived on Wakefield Avenue in New Salem from 1951 to 1954. I attended kindergarten and first grade at the little school around the corner, which was later called Salem School but, on my 1st grade class photo, 1953-1954, it is titled Flower Hill School. But, according to what I read on this site and I’ve heard from others, Flower Hill was by Weber. So, what’s the deal?

    Kitty: I think we were in the same class..I have the same photo labeled the same way and I can’t remember why it says Flower Hill when we went to Salem School… though I have a faint remembrance of having to move over to Weber because of some construction at Salem … I lived on Winthrop Rd. and in the photo am the farthest kid on the right,seated with the dark bow tie. Everybody signed my photo, some only first names and I can ID just about everyone ( no Kitty but a Kathryn… maybe you ? ). I have 4th and 6th grade photos too but would like others ( 2nd, 3rd, and 5th ) as well as class lists. Have not contacted the school yet to see if they have an archive. Hope to hear from you.
