2,000 be appropriated for said purpose. The inhabitants of West Medford, desirous of having a schoolhouse more ample in its dimensions and more classic in its appearance than the town's appropriation would procure, cheerfully united in adding to it, by subscription, the sum of nine hundred dollars. This sum was raised by residents of the West End; and they who were most able to give, gave with abounding liberality. The building committee were Messrs. Charles Caldwell, J. B. Hatch, and J. M. Usher; and they spared no pains in procuring a skilful draughtsman. Mr. George A. Caldwell was the master-builder. On the 6th of August, 1851, the corner-stone was laid with appropriate religious and literary exercises. Edward Brooks, Esq., presided, and made the opening remarks. Prayer was offered by Rev. E. K. Fuller; and then an original poem was spoken by a pupil, followed with short speeches by neighbors and friends. The house is placed between Irving and Brooks Streets, on the hill
