The growth of [Mason] City southward toward the Milwaukee tracks made necessary two grade schools in that area. A four room Garfield School was built in 1882 at 318 Sixth S. E. In 1900 four more rooms were added and later the entire structure was rebuilt.

NOTE: Mason City's second school was the Grant School at 503 Sixth S. W., built in 1884.
