Berkeley in Alameda County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Site of the Kellogg School
At the time, high school attendance in California was not compulsory and many working class parents objected to paying taxes for a school their children might not attend and which was far from West Berkeley. With four graduates in 1884, the school became the first high school in the state to be accredited by the University of California.
In 1918 the building served as a place of worship for Berkeley’s First Hebrew Congregation. Later, commercial buildings were constructed on the site.
Erected 2000 by Berkeley Historical Plaque Project.
