Building History

Naramore designed the Dunlap Elementary School in the Neo-Georgian Style, similar to that of the Hughes School, Roosevelt High School and others that he did in the Seattle Public School System in the 1920s. The exterior detailing of the Dunlap and Hughes Schools are nearly identical; Dunlap featured stone trimwork, Hughes had less expensive terra cotta.


Naramore made an addition to the school in 1925. John Graham and Company designed an addition to this school in 1953-1954.

Renovation occurred to some portions of the existing building and a 50,000-square-foot addition was erected in 1999-2000. During this renovation, a portion of the 1924 Naramore building was razed as was the entire Graham and Company addition.

Part of Naramore's 1924 school and the 1953-1954 were demolished just after the school was closed in 06/1999.
