Originally located on Academy Lane, this building was the first school in Chester. Later, it was moved to Grove Street, and became the Grove Street School. In 1829, New Jersey State Law decreed that school districts must be created. The Grove Street School District was one of the original districts in Chester. The structure shown in the post card above no longer exists.
