Mount Pleasant School

Update: See the stylistically similar Fremont School from October of 2019.

Converted into apartments, the Mount Pleasant School stands out as a building of high style among the low rise housing of the Dutchtown neighborhood.

Influenced by Renaissance art, the front door and the flanking windows show the influence of Michelangelo. I love architecture like this, so innocent and eclectic in its realization.

    Pretty neat huh? Marge sent me a picture of her 6th grade graduation but I don’t recognize the school. Maybe a side that I never saw.
