Former site of the Central Grammar School
— The Path of History —This block of Broadway underwent a number of major changes during the first half of the twentieth century.It started out as the Central Grammar School in 1895 (legally named "Redwood City Public School") shown at the left above. Part of a third floor building wing was set aside for the ninth grade, as nucleus for the proposed Sequoia High School. The town took great pride in this majestic building, and its central clock tower was a distinctive Downtown landmark. The building was torn down in 1928 to be replaced by the New Sequoia Theatre.
