ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH WEDNESDAY, AUdUSf 2S ( First Class Brighton Kiiidergai'ttiei's Occupy Venerable Site BRltittfON - Brighton's firs kindergarten class, due to delay In construction of a now schoo biilldlMg, wlU begin the year al East Grade School located on a lo eally-historic site. Completion of the Hew school on West Grade School site Will mark the end of continuous Use ot the site of the old East Grade school. Approximately 100 years ago a frame building on the East Grade School site served as a resort-ho tel specializing in the "Water cure." Curative powers of the water may be judged by the fact that well before the turn of the century an academy succeeded the resort-hotel in the frame building. Presiding over the educative processes of the acadt; my was a personage remembered by older citizens of Brighton as "Professor Hill, he came from the East." At least one pupil at the academy is remembered to have enrolled there because the teacher at the publis school which once stood on the corner of Vine and Main, where the home of Mr. and Mrs. Everett Phillips now stands, referred to her and several others as "nincompoops". This term was deemed to be so insulting that the pupil fled to the academy, where it is supposed Eastern dignity governed class room procedures. Later, the first four grades,of public school met in the old frame building now known as East Grade School, replaced the frame building and all elementary classes, plus three years of h i g h school, met there. A frame addition known familiarly as* the "sheep shed" was added in the early twenties, and in 1938 needs of the growing Brighton popula tion resulted in the building of West School, originally used as a high school. New building in progress now is addition to West School and the old school by the tracks will soon be vacant, except for the ghosts of the uncured water patients and Professor Hill who came from "the East." Before these ghosts can roam at will, Brighton's kindergartners will add the imprint of their feet to that tortured soil which has supported so many years of en terprise and education.
