Derby History Quiz
Gilbert Street School
The Gilbert Street School dates back to a time when
Derby had multiple school districts served by neighborhood schools. This was
the second of two schools that were located on Gilbert Street. The one
pictured above closed about the turn of the century - 20th
century! When it closed, the students didn't have far to go as the new
Franklin School, built in 1902, just
down the street took its place. Franklin School still exists, but it was
converted into the Franklin Apartments less than a century after it first
