Lake Junior High School

-A A +A
1926, Merrill H. and Burnham F. Hoyt. 1820 Lowell Blvd.

This Tudor Revival masterpiece, with towers, chimney, and patterned brick-work, is supposedly modeled after a part of Windsor Castle but also features an Arabic minaret and dome. The expansive building, constructed for $829,000, occupies a 3.5-block hilltop site looking west onto Sloan's Lake in a parklike setting designed by landscape architect M. Walter Pesman. The school is relatively unaltered, its exquisite brick detail emphasized by the absence of other materials.
