Today In Disney History ~ September 5th


The original Benton Grammar School was built at 3004 Benton Boulevard. The building is now a retirement community, the  DA Holmes Senior Apartments. The new version of the school is named the Thomas Hart Benton Elementary School, and as it’s website shows it is proud of it’s history!

“The original Benton school was built in 1903 and named for Thomas Hart Benton, a famous Missouri senator. The current building was opened in 1952, with a large addition in 1964. The media and early childhood learning centers opened in the spring of 2000, following the passage of a 1998 bond issue. Air Conditioning was installed in the summer of 2000.”

Michele is a life long Disney fan, and has two sons who have followed suit, each going on their first Disney trip before their first birthday’s. Part of the goal Michele has for The Main Street Mouse is not only to keep members informed, but to create somewhat of a Disney Family by relating to others through personal experiences and opinions. Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others. ~ I enjoy writing personal perspective blogs, doing TMSM Meet Ups for our readers, and keeping the constant interaction going with others, sharing the Disney Magic to people when they can’t be at their Happy Place.
