Parishioners start the first free kindergarten in Lancaster

Two parishioners, Mary Martin and Ellen Brubaker were instrumental in the establishment of the first free kindergarten in Lancaster. Mary had taught at Saint James Parochial School and for many years at the Boys’ High School. When the School District of Lancaster assumed the operations of the kindergarten, Miss Brubaker taught at Wickersham School until her retirement in 1940.
