Quarry Schoolhouse Quarry Elementary 1964

Welcome. I am Joy Buslaff. My parents, Mary and Rolland Buslaff, moved into the old Quarry School in 1960, and I began attending the new Quarry Elementary that same year. (Sadly, the new school had a short life. It was demolished in the 1970s to make way for American TV & Appliance.)

In 2001 my husband, Dan Savin, and I began renovating the old stone schoolhouse. We hope to put finishing touches on the building and landscape in 2021 and plan to post a sign announcing that tours will be available by appointment. Further, I hope to produce a documentary about this special building and the history surrounding it. Fingers crossed, it might be released on YouTube in 2022.

You are invited to use this site to post your reminiscences and photos from your school days. If you’re unsure how to go about posting here, simply e-mail your text or photos to or write to me at W233N671 Redford Blvd, Waukesha, WI 53186.

Former neighbors and the general public are invited to tour
our building and native plant landscape by appointment.
