The Museum in the Streets: Minneapolis, Minnesota

—27th and Lake: Industry and Transportation Infrastructure —

 Initially known as Centennial School, the original Longfellow School stood on the NE corner of Lake and Minnehaha between 1876 and 1919. In the early 1880s, the City of Minneapolis annexed the area, and the Minneapolis Board of Education gained jurisdiction over the school, renaming it Longfellow. The school was expanded in 1887 and 1908 to accommodate a growing population. Because it lacked a playground, students used the land of Jake Martin, who lived across the street. If a ball broke a window in Mr. Martin's barn, the student was sent to apologize and pay for a new pane. In 1918, Longfellow School relocated to a new building at 31st Avenue and 31st Street. The original school building was demolished in 1919 and the property was redeveloped as a commercial site.

Conocido anteriormente como Centennial School, el original Longfellow School estaba en la esquina noreste de Lake y Minnehaha entre 1876 y 1919. Temprano en los 1880, la Ciudad de Minneapolis anexó la zona, y la Junta Educacional de Minneapolis adquirió jurisdicción sobre la escuela, renombrándola Longfellow. Se expandió en 1887 y 1908 para alojar una creciente

población. Al no poseer patio de recreo, los alumnos usaban el terreno de Jake Martin, quien vivía enfrente. Si le rompían una ventana, se mandaba al alumno culpable a pedir perdón y a pagar por una nueva. En 1918 la escuela se trasladó a un nueva edificio en 31st Avenue y 31st Street. La escuela original se domolió en 1919, renovándose el sitio para uso comercial.
