Fredrika Bremer Intermediate SchoolEdit profile
The Fredrika Bremer Intermediate School or Bremer School, located at 1214 Lowry Avenue North in Minneapolis, Hennepin County in the U.S. state of Minnesota was built in 1887, a period of rapid population expansion in Minneapolis. Initially the school housed grades 1-3 for 70 students. The school was nearly identical in design to two other Minneapolis schools, Calhoun School and Peabody School. The original structure had eight classrooms, but the building was expanded upon several times throughout its nearly 100-year life as a school. The Folwell neighborhood building was constructed of light brick and limestone and featured several turrets and towers. Its namesake, Fredrika Bremer (1801-1865) was a Swedish novelist who traveled to Minnesota and wrote about women's rights. The building has now been converted for use as residential condominiums.
