Replacing burned-down school caused a hubbub

I mentioned a Center School that burned in 1871 in the previous column. It is unknown when the school was built or what it looked like, but it had a second story according to the article about the fire. It was located on the southwest corner of 16th Avenue and 14th Street where the newer Center School, and then Lincoln School, were later located.
