Joseph C. Sweeney School

-A A +A
c. 1896. Centennial and Laurel Hill Grove sts.

Here the Mapleville School (see BU2) is duplicated for Bridgeton. More altered than its Mapleville equivalent, it was cruelly stripped of ornament and other subtleties in the process, and now stands abandoned. The cast iron fountain and water trough on the school lawn used to be at the intersection.
