Shown below are 3 pictures of WI High School taken from 1925 to 2001.

Below is Linden Grade School on Linden Ave. I went to school here after one year at Towers.
How well I remember the 4th grade teacher (Mrs. Timberlake) reading from the book "The Boxcar Children".
Mr. Flanigan was the principal and Mr. Hayes was the janitor.

Do you remember banking in grade school?  I found it very hard to have a savings account, especially when I had to pass the Dairy Queen every day.

Below is an old picture of Carlile Grade School. 

The Northwest Virginia Academy.

The building below is Towers Grade School. It stood at the site of the Northwestern Virginia Academy. The school was named after the Reverend George Towers, who taught at
the former Randolph Academy. Towers opened in the 1890's under the name of Clarksburg Public School.

The dairy company next to Tower Grade School was demolished to make room for the new Expressway ramp.

Towers was demolished in the mid 1990. Central Jr. H.S., seen in the background, closed around the same time and would also be demolished at a later date. Towers was located on Hewes Ave.

Below is an old picture taken of Pierpont School.

  1. Great pictures, Thank you for the share. I went to Morgan Grade School, and then to Central Jr. High School and Washington Irving as well as my mother and her brother. Sad to see Morgan Grade School is no more as well as Central and of course WI is now a middle school.
