Smythe Street School, Fredericton

Smythe Street School, Fredericton

Smythe Street School was built in 1914 at the corner of Smythe and Saunders Streets, with 8 rooms plus a second-floor auditorium. It provided Grades 1 to 8 classes for students from the western, or up-river, part of Fredericton until 1956, then became a Grades 1 to 6 school.

Its role as an elementary school ended very abruptly one day, in 1988, when a major structural problem was found in the building. A few years later, after proper repairs were made, it became part of the Fredericton Campus of the New Brunswick Community College. It still fulfils this role.

  1. Our family lived in Fredericton(from Cape Breton)for 2yrs. My sisters and I went to school at Smyth Street during that time.
    Our parents had no camera therefore we have only a few pics, that others took of us as children.
    Would be so happy to track down any school pics from those 2yrs at Smyth Street.
    1962-1965ish.
    Could someone give me any idea’s on how to find some? Or is there a Facebook group for Fredericton where as people post old pictures? Any direction would be extremely appreciated!
    I also belong to a Capr Breton Facebook group and people post old school pics. I saw my oldest sister in one picture and now treasure it.

    Thankyou 4any direction you may give.
