One Response to Lowell 1926: Parochial Schools

  1. Paul Early says:

    I am curious about the school that later became the Franco American school. I believe that the orphanage was opened before 1926. Was there a school associated with it? Perhaps it was only for children at the orphanage at that time.

    I noticed in a 2016 post here that a four story addition was added in the 1912. If it is the same addition that is there still, it looks to me as it was built for classrooms, but maybe there were multiple additions.
