In 1886-87, a sixteen-classroom, two-story brick school was built "to afford accommodation for the outlying schools in the neighborhood of Brook avenue." The school fronted on Moore Street; hence the name Moore School or, more often, Moore Street School. This building, one of seven schools built between 1887-1898, is said to be the only one retaining much of the original "interior and exterior character," and has been described as one of the best examples of the period, still publicly owned.
The Moore Street School Foundation, a 501 C3, was created March 24 2021 with the purpose to own and redevelop Moore Street School building.
Objective: Repurpose a decaying Moore Street SChool into a center of Profitable Learning and Personal Development opportunities for multiple communities.
Challenge: Create an entity that does not duplicate services readily available elsewhere. Give the community a focal point it will respect, admire and utilize. Generate ownership within the community and attract interest, endorsement and participation
Concept: Find and integrate public and private sector service providers in life skills, job skills health and quality of life sectors into a self-sustaining entrepreneurial operation unique to Richmond.
