Maple Grove Elementary School

Address: West 32nd Avenue and Youngfield, Applewood

This school was built in 1878 at a cost of $1,000. The structure had brick walls a foot thick and 12-foot high ceilings. It was also known as "Black School" because the land was donated by the Black family. The building, with its subsequent additions, was torn down to make way for a gas station.
