It was sad when they tore freeman school down. to me the city could,ve save the school. nothing like the old neighbor schools. we didnt have to worry about buses in the morning to go to school.and going home to for lunch was great too.

Ahhh the memories! The door showing under the R of Randy's name was the girls' entrance, back in the fifties, when May O'Hearn and then Norman Rosch were principals. Bill Minardi and George Petropoulis, eighth grade teachers, played basketball with us on that basketball court and coached us in football and baseball on that field. In the winter, the field was flooded to make a skating rink. During the long winter months it was the social center of the world for us.

Must have been after Brayton went away, as Mr Petropolus taught me 8th grade there in 1961...

George Petropoulis started his teaching career at Freeman around 1956-57, fresh out of college. He must have moved to Brayton sometime after that.

I graduated from Freeman in 1957. I went kindergarten thru 8. I loved this school. Very sad that it had to be torn down. I had Mr. Bill Menardi and Mr. George Petropulos as teachers, also Miss McCormick, Miss Quinton, Miss Smith, Miss Kloetzle and Miss Sinnot. If anybody out there was in my class I'd sure like to hear from you. My name was Mary Jones. E-mail Mare2bits2000@yahoo.com

In the 50's I went to Freeman from Kindergarten thu 8th. I loved that school. We had so much fun. I can still see Miss O'Hearn coming down the halls..she scared me half to death. It breaks my heart to see the empty spot where it once stood. That's the trouble with North Adams, they tore down everything they could. Shame! Shame! Shame!
