(33) 219 Center Street

219 Center"Hobart's first school, built by the townspeople in 1845, was on the site of the Masonic Temple. Lake County Old Settlers' records relate one oak was cut down and made into enough lumber to build the entire school and all the furniture in it. It was moved in 1925 to Water Street."

Images (links open in a new window):
♦ A then-and-now post with two early-20th-century views of the schoolhouse.
♦ The newly built Masonic temple (circa 1925).
♦ If you scroll down through this rather lengthy post, you will find an early (circa 1925) interior view of the Masonic temple.
