W-130-5B - Weston Grade School
The Weston Grade School at East Wallace and South Water Streets

        The first formal education in Weston started in the 1860s when Mrs. Noah Lieuallen
taught local pupils in her home. In the winter of 1870, William Pruett started a subscription school, charging $6 per student for three months of tuition. The large brick public school on South Water Street was built 1892, at a cost of $14,000, for educating pupils in grades 1
though 12. In 1912, classes for high school-age students were moved to the State Normal School building at East Wallace and Broad Streets. In 1924, the Elementary-level students were also moved to the Normal School, with this building on Water Street being later demolished.
