Excerpt from Annual Report of the School Committee of the City of Boston: 1892
The year which is now closing has been in three respects, at least, a memorable one in the history of our schools. And first in
The Number Of New Buildings Completed.
As is very well known, there was for some years a period when few appropriations were made for new buildings. But all this has been happily changed, and the City Council for the four years 1889 to 1892 have generously responded to the call of this Board for our needs in this respect. It is of interest to note that during the past four years, and to help make good, so far as possible, the deficiencies of previous years, there has been appropriated for new school buildings and sites a trifle over $2,000,000.
The first building of the new series to be completed was the Roxbury High School, which opened for the first time in the fall of 1891, but was not dedicated until April 1, 1892. The second building was the Bowditch Grammar (formerly the Hillside), Jamaica Plain, which was occupied in March and dedicated April 28, 1892.
