1. Monroe Academy
I went to school there from grade 5 to High School Graduation in 1948. I remember it well, as my sister & I walked to school on E. Henrietta Rd. from where we lived in Floyd Winslow's homestead which my family rented from 1937-1947.
I was in R-H's first graduating class in 1948. I've many great memories of the school & classmates. In 1947,our class of 12 were joined by 22 from Rush to form Rush-Henrietta's first class. It was NY State's oldest continuously operating High school, (127 years in 1948.), in it's old building. After new school buildings came along, the old academy building eventually the YMCA, which burned down in '48, I believe.
