PLANS OF THE SOUTH DISTRICT SCHOOL-HOUSE IN THE CITY OF HARTFORD.

The house, illustrated in Figs. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, was erected in 1851, after plans by E. D. Tiffany, Esq., at an expense, including lot, inclosure, building, and furniture, of $13,000. The location is both central and retired, on the east side of Wadsworth street, having a front of 320 feet, and depth of 150, and is rendered surpassingly attractive and beautiful by a number of fine old majestic oaks and graceful elms. The building is of brick, 70 feet by 58, exclusive of the towers, and s three stories high, and was designed to accommodate 450 pupils-but owing to the attraction of the house and popularity of the school, provision has been made in it for 500 pupils-classified into five departments.
