MEMBERS ONLY TOUR OF EDMUNDS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Wednesday, May 29, 2013
1601 Crocker St., Des Moines
Join the Des Moines Historical Society for a last chance to see inside Edmunds Elementary School.
Built in 1972, Edmunds is one of only 12 buildings across the United States designed as an “open concept” building. Once a magnet school for Fine Arts, Edmunds is now a neighborhood school serving the Sherman Hills, Oakridge and Drake Park neighborhoods.
In May 2012, the Des Moines Public Schools broke ground on a new $10.25 million school building that will replace Edmunds. The new building is nearing completion and will be open by the time classes resume in August. Edmunds is slated for demolition soon after classes adjourn for the summer.
This is an opportunity for dues-paying members of the Des Moines Historical Society. Anyone who is not a member may sign up and pay dues at the event in order to participate.
