The citizens of our country have continually demanded better and better educational facilities for their children, and they will continue to do so as long as this country remains a republic. — James O. Betelle, Architecture, May, 1932

Montrose School Gets Patched

September 2nd, 2009 · No Comments · Architecture, Articles

Marcia Worth of Patch, a local community portal, has written a nice piece on Montrose School in South Orange, New Jersey.

“The Montrose school yard boasts what I consider to be the most beautiful birch tree in town. It’s also a fine tree for climbing, according to my neighbor, who indicated a branch far from the ground. There, she recalled, pointing at a scratch I could barely see, were her sons’ initials, carved into the tree one day at recess.”

Montrose is a rather unique design for the town and a sentimental favorite of mine.
