School History: "How about the fire at the old Eddystone High School 12/11/1960.  It broke out in a boiler room that was located under the art room.  Fortunately the school was closed that day because of snow or there could have been allot of people hurt.

At the time of the fire we would have been in our home room classes, one of which was the art room.  The school was going to be closed then but thanks to the churches in Eddystone who offered rooms for classes as did the old Eddy Morie, the Bowling Alley on Chester Pike offered to have it used for gym classes, we were able to stay together as a class of 1961 and graduate from there instead of being sent to Ridley Twp and/or Ridley Park High Schools.

The High School eventually closed and it was consolidated with the Ridley School District but it was a good school at the time with allot of happy memories for many of us."

Thanks to Diana, aug30@home.com, for this recollection.
