Photo 1: The Red Brick School. [Photo 1] with link to larger version of photo.
(Homestead National Monument of America)

This photograph was taken in 1978, over a decade after the last students attended the school in 1967. The Freeman School, now operated by Homestead National Monument of America, appears today as it did in 1978.

Questions for Photo 1

2. Is there anything notable about the front window and doorway?

3. Is there anything visible from the exterior of this building to suggest that it once was a school?
