Harvard Elementary School

949 Glendale Ave.

In 1920, Toledo voters approved an $11 million bond for the expansion of the city school system. Community forums were held and feedback about the future design of the new schools centered around the idea that since many local parents felt it might be beyond their means to send their children to college, the city should build schools that would provide area students a college feel. 

Harvard School, built along the banks of the Maumee in 1936, still stands out today as a beautiful example of collegiate Gothic-style architecture.
