Museum Memories: Cordova’s first school

By 1910 – 1911, Cordovans had their very first new school and were extremely proud of the structure that sat near the crest of Browning Avenue overlooking the growing community.

It consisted of four large rooms with adjoining cloak rooms and a bell tower. By now, three teachers were necessary – the faculty included Principal – Miss Adele J. Pickle and her two assistants Miss Meldah Nettleton and Miss Violet Borgette.

It’s just too bad Miss Pickle wasn’t principal while Mr. Hamberger was there!
