From 1915 to 2002, district's 21 elementaries have been through several iterations. Of those 21 buildings, the two oldest are Arthur and Garfield. Both of the buildings opened in the fall of 1915.Their architectural styles are historically unique. Arthur exhibits a “fortress” design, and Garfield is especially interesting with its Egyptian-inspired front columns and entrance. Harrison School, 1310 11th St. NW, stands out as the architectural gem of all current Cedar Rapids elementary schools.
