Thanks to the very thoughtful Matt Newman, director of Sales and Services for School Facility Services in Waukesha, we now have floor plans of the otherwise-erased grade school of our memories: “The attached drawing was found in my blueprint file. It was identified only as Quarry School. Thought you may want a copy of it.”
Ground floor level.
There appear to be no architectural drawings of the exterior, however, Mid-Century Modern architectural stylings from the era by Joseph L. Eichler (see examples below) help one re-imagine Quarry Elementary. (Do you see a resemblance in the low-slung roof line and exposed beams and posts?)
The school was a masterpiece of design, in my opinion; reflective of its era like very few schools; and it’s a tragedy it was destroyed rather than repurposed. — J.B.
