The former Roosevelt School has for many years fallen under the banner of the Roosevelt Arms Condominiums. There was a time that in a small space of about a mile you found Morrill School, St. Joseph's Grammar School, St. Joseph's Academy, Lincoln Junior High School, Longfellow School, Deering High School and Roosevelt School. Were there really that many kids in this section of Portland? Some were bulldozed into parking lots, others still function as educational institutions and this one has taken on a new life in its later years.
Happy MOTHER'S Day to E- and all the other mothers out there!
