Washington Elementary- Des Moines, IA
In 1874, Washington Elementary opened its doors to students of the original Des Moines school district. Located just off of Indianola road and SE 14th on East Hartford, this distinctive brick structure stands as a reminder of school days past.
Initially home to kindergarten through sixth grade students, the school was expanded many times over the course of its life to accommodate older classes. Following its closure as a school, the building was given new life as a day care center for some years.
