Regarding Longfellow School. According to the Madison Landmarks Commission, "Longfellow School presents a unified appearance despite its being designed and built in three phases. It was built in the formal brick subtype of the Tudor Revival, sometimes called the Elizabethan Revival. The elementary school served the ethnically diverse Greenbush neighborhood for many years. In the early 1960s the national urban renewal program, adopted in many U.S. cities, dislocated a large section of the neighborhood and enrollment declined. The school closed in 1980."
