Profile: B.F. Day SchoolDecember 19th, 2007 @ 1:24 am by Cliffe | Sorted Historic Buildings |
From one sacred institution to another. Yesterday we had a look at some early 1900′s churches from around the city and today I want to have a look at one of Seattle’s oldest schools, B.F. Day School. Located just off Highway 99 in Fremont, B.F. Day is Seattle’s oldest continually operating elementary school. Queen Anne High may get all of the architectural attention, but this building is all 1800′s utility. The site was a gift to the Seattle School Board from Francis and Benjamin Franklin Day valued at the time at $10,000. After opening in 1892, the school gained additions in 1901 and 1916.
