Bancroft School



The white clapboard house north of Morrison Road and west of South Harlan Street was across the street from Dr. Frederick Jones Bancroft's dairy. Bancroft purchased the acre of land with this house, and as it remained vacant he offered it to the neighboring farmers and suggested that it be used as a school. The land and building were deeded to Jefferson County after Dr. Bancroft's death. In 1919 the clapboard building was demolished and replaced by a brick structure, also known as the Bancroft School. The brick school has also been demolished.
