Long Description:
Crichton Street School

"The school in New Edinburgh moved four times before the first school was built on this site in 1875. The present building took on its main shape in 1906. A major new wing, which forms the front facade, was added in 1919-20. With its modern design and facilities, it was regarded as a great advance in school architecture. The school was closed in 1999 but still serves New Edinburgh as the home of the Crichton Cultural Community Centre."
