Middletown Schoolhouse

Originally located at the northwest corner of Union and Elm Streets in San Diego, the Middletown Schoolhouse was one of four of San Diego's very large spectacular Victorian schoolhouses built in the 1880's, buildings that most cities today would give anything to have. All four have been removed and replaced with non-descript institutional designed schools similar to the one located at the Middletown site shown in the modern photo.

Quite an improvement, huh? School officials seem to think that new schools must sprawl all over the landscape with prison style architecture, instead of utilizing urban sites with more efficient multistory buildings and creating a place that children could be proud of belonging to.
