The Old Bromfield School

Because of Margaret Bromfield Pearson Blanchard’s generosity, Harvard got a high school for the town, to educate girls as well as boys. Now the building is part of the Harvard Public Library.

Back to School Memories

At one time Harvard had nine school districts, each with its own schoolhouse. Districts merged, and in 1905 there was one grammar school.

Colonel Henry Bromfield

The Colonel’s “picturesque figure and strong individuality made him a notable feature of the town’s life.”
