1. Eckstein School Marker
Inscription.  Eckstein Elementary School operated on this site from 1915-1958 serving the Glendale's Negro Children from Kindergarten through eighth grade. The school was named in honor of Eleanor Eckstein, who taught the children at various locations in this village during the time of segregation in America. Upon completing eighth grade, Eckstein School's student were integrated with their white counterparts in grades nine through twelve at Congress Avenue School. The Eckstein School building evolved from a single family dwelling into its present structure through a series of expansions, the last of which was the addition of a gymnasium in 1928. In the mid-1950's, Glendale became part of the Princeton School District. A new consolidated high school opened in 1958. The Congress Avenue School became Glendale Elementary, and Eckstein was closed. This commemorative text was composed by alumni of the Eckstein School.
