1914 – 1916

The Kenmore schoolhouse was occupied for two years, 1914-1916, until consolidating with Bothell, and later served as a meeting place for the newly organized Kenmore Community Club. After club members built their own quarters, the schoolhouse stood vacant for years, as evidenced by this 1930s picture.
