  • Italianate
EWT, 2010:

60) Boynton High School (NR), corner of High and Boynton streets. A good example of the Italianate style even though its facade has been altered and the cupola removed. This was the third schoolhouse built on this site and replaced the Old South schoolhouse that burned in 1846. Shortly after this fire the new Boynton School was started and was dedicated on May 28, 1847. James P. Wheeler, chairman of the building committee, was responsible for most of the school's construction. The school graduated its last class in 1917 when Shead Memorial High opened. The school was designed by the noted 19th century Boston architect, Gridley J.F. Bryant. This was Bryant's earliest known work in Maine.
