George Hosmer Elementary

George Hosmer Elementary was part of a broad expansion of the Detroit Public School system in the early 1920’s. Named for circuit court judge, planning for the first unit of Hosmer school began in 1921 and was completed in 1923. A K-12 addition in 1925 added 540 seats. The makeup of the student body reflected the changing city, starting out as mostly Belgian immigrants and growing to include 22 other nationalities.

After years of declining enrollment the school closed in 2004.
