Garfield School, 528 Cottage Street NE, (NR)

In 1909 the Salem School District invested $22,899 in this brick elementary school building, designed by Fred Legg, a local architect following a standard American Renaissance style. It closed in 1973 and the interior was renovated for offices. On its one-quarter city block, the property retains its traditional American school appearance.
