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.”
