Irving School


 

Irving School Peoria

519 NE Glendale

Building a school for $33,368 might seem like a bargain by today’s standards, but in 1898, when the Irving School was built, it was a lot of money. Although the school last saw students in December of 2012, the Irving School still serves as a historical landmark in Peoria. The school’s Flemish Renaissance design mirrors the design of Peoria City Hall. Through its history, there were only 10 principals, with four of them being women. This building has a rich history of student activity throughout the years.
