Did You Know… the name of this school or where it was located? This is the Willard Grade School, located on the North-East corner of Seventh and Lucinda. This school served from 1900 until 1940 and was torn down in 1967. I was told that it was a collection point for items being sent to our troops during World War II. For several years it was a recreation center for teens in the early 60s. I lived just south of the school for a number of years, I got to see it fall into disrepair. I remember a colony of raccoons that called it home at one time.
