Swengle School, 4485 Market Street, NE, (D)

This first school in the Swegle School District was built around 1900 when George Swegle sold one acre of land on Garden Road (Market Street) to the District for $80. The first section of the school as we know it today was built in 1923-4. By the 1938, the school had four classrooms, three teachers and enough students to field a sports program. In one year girls were recruited to fill out the baseball team.
