Educating the "fairer sex", 1953

Before Nathan left for vacation yesterday (on the Outer Banks no less!) he prepared this blog post for your viewing enjoyment. J.
Columbus School for Girls was founded in 1898 by Florence Kelley and Mary Bole to serve as a college-prep school for the young women of the city. (A fairly innovative idea at the time.) It was located at a small house on E. Town St. until 1901 when it moved to the old house of George McClellan Parsons at Bryden Ave. and Parsons. There it remained for 52 years.
The above picture was taken in March of 1953. Later that year the school would move to its current location in Bexley, where there was a little more room. Here is an aerial shot from 2010 for comparison:

In addition to impressive academics and a long history the school also has the best mascot in Columbus. Much more intimidating (and stylish) than a buckeye. Go Unicorns
