Bryant Boulder (42)

Bryant Boulder

This boulder marks the site of Bryant School. The first real school building on the east side, it was completed in 1867, and named for William Cullen Bryant, a poet. Bryant School was acquired by the state in 1917 for $30,000 and used as an office building. The building was condemned in 1936 and ironically served as office space for the Fire Marshals office until it was torn down in 1949.
