I happened across this photo (above) on the internet a few days ago and knew that I had not seen it before. Originally, this was S.S. No.2 Springhill Public School, on the west side of Keele Street, at the north end of today's King City village. It dates from 1873. In 1951, the addition to the east facade (below) was added, long after the name had become King City Public School. I attended my Grade 8 year here in the mid-fifties. The name was changed to Doris M. Public School a few years later and in the late 1960s the School became the Presbyterian Church of King City. The original schoolhouse and now church is 145 years old and would appear to be heading for the 200-year-mark in another 55 years.
