A Brief History of Theodore Roosevelt Elementary
The original location of Roosevelt Elementary was on Grand Ave. It was built in the 1920's and was severely damaged in the Sylmar Earthquake of 1971. It was deemed unusable and eventually demolished.
Roosevelt Elementary was eventually rebuilt at its current location at 501 South Halladay Street. The new site was dedicated in 1973.
