Picadome School, 1978

Posted on September 22, 2014 | in Uncategorized | by
The old Picadome School on Harrodsburg Road at McCubbin's Lane, in the summer of 1978. The school was the third to carry the Picadome name and was demolished in November of 1978 to make way for a vocational school, now the Southside Technical Center. The original "Little" Picadome school was built in 1888 on Harrodsburg Road. In 1912 a new building was constructed on the site of the present Picadome Elementary and it became known as the second "Little" Picadome. The "big" Picadome School, pictured here was built in 1923. When Lafayette High School was opened in 1939 it became Picadome Elementary. Photo by E. Martin Jessee | Staff
