Fredrika Bremer Intermediate School

The Fredrika Bremer Intermediate School or Bremer School, located at 1214 Lowry Avenue North in Minneapolis, Hennepin County in the U.S. state of Minnesota was built in 1887, a period of rapid population expansion in Minneapolis. Initially the school housed grades 1-3 for 70 students. The school was nearly identical in design to two other Minneapolis schools, Calhoun School and Peabody School. The original structure had eight classrooms, but the building was expanded upon several times throughout its nearly 100-year life as a school. The Folwell neighborhood building was constructed of light brick and limestone and featured several turrets and towers. Its namesake, Fredrika Bremer (1801-1865) was a Swedish novelist who traveled to Minnesota and wrote about women's rights. The building has now been converted for use as residential condominiums.

Famous quotes containing the words school and/or intermediate:

    ...I believed passionately that Communists were a race of horned men who divided their time equally between the burning of Nancy Drew books and the devising of a plan of nuclear attack that would land the largest and most lethal bomb squarely upon the third-grade class of Thomas Jefferson School in Morristown, New Jersey.
    Fran Lebowitz (b. 1950)

    Complete courage and absolute cowardice are extremes that very few men fall into. The vast middle space contains all the intermediate kinds and degrees of courage; and these differ as much from one another as men’s faces or their humors do.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)
