Goffe Street School

The former Goffe Street School was built in 1864 to provide a much-needed facility for African American children. It closed ten years later after Connecticut ended racially segregated education, and many of its former students attended predominantly white public schools. Subsequently used by a number of organizations working with the African American community, the building was purchased in 1929 by the Grand Lodge of Prince Hall Masons of Connecticut. The building is known as Widow’s Son Lodge #1 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The property is privately owned and not open to the public.
