From its opening in 1923, to its contested status today, what we now call Coultrap Elementary School has touched the lives of many Geneva residents. Originally, the Geneva Community High School, and later a junior high, then a middle school, and finally Coultrap Elementary, the Coultrap building has hosted youth at a variety of stages in their lives. On Februrary 12 at noon, come listen to key events in the building's history and hear shared stories about Geneva residents' experiences with this endangered building.
Presented by the Geneva History Center, this program is part of the Brown Bag Lunch series. It will take place on Tuesday, February 12, 2013, at noon at the Geneva History Center, 113 South Third Street, in the heart of Geneva’s downtown historic district.
Cost of admission is $5 for adults, $3 for GHC members and students, free to Herrington Circle Members. Cookies and coffee are provided and participants are encouraged to bring their lunch.
