Julienne Girls School

The Julienne Girls School was recently listed by the Ohio Preservations “2009 Most Endangered Properties” , replacing the Dayton Arcade on this list.

On April 15, 2009 City Commission voted on the fate of the National Register listed Julienne Girls High School (Dayton Christian, Stivers ) located at 325 Homewood in the Five Oaks neighborhood.  The HD-3 zoning overlay was unanimously approved by Landmarks and City of Dayton Plan Board, but was Remanded back to Plan Board with specific instructions by the Dayton City Commission. The case is currently in limbo.

The Five Oaks Neighborhood and Preservation Dayton has seeking an adaptive reuse of the property.  Five Oaks is not opposed to selective demolition, and does want a neighborhood school. The demographics support this use and the area around the school has more school age children than any where else in the city.

We can not let DPS demolish another one of Dayton’s Historic and Architectural assets.  We have lost too many all ready.  Roosevelt, EJ Brown, Steele, Van Cleeve are already gone.  These buildings belong to the people of Dayton and were build to last.
