I know the school you're talking about. It was a jr. high school called Lyon Jr. High School. I was in part of the 7th grade there in in 1959, until we moved out of the area in April. At the time, it seemed sleek and modern, and was a 2 or 3 story building (I can't recall). I don't know when it was built, but it couldn't have been very old. It's possible there had been earlier school on that property back in the early-1940s, but I don't really know the history of it.

This morning I was looking at Amazon's page that discusses one of the "Images of America" series by the Arcadia Publishing Co. I have a number of these books and they provide a lot of info and pictures on various cities and towns. They have recently published one on Madisonville. One of the pictures shown was the Lyons school which opened on the location that I have been studying. It opened in 1956, According to the caption on the picture this was the first of several public education buildings on the site, . So, my question has been answered. I appreciate your help in searching this out..

I lived in Strafford Manor from 1959-1964. It was a wonderful place to live. I attended Eastwood Elementary and Lyon Jr High. We moved to TN when I started my sophmore year. We lived on Eastwood Drive. My sistern brother and I loved going to the pool. We went to the church at the end of Eastwood and Red Bank Rd. My mom worked at Nutone. I often wonder what happened to the friends we had there. I have such wonderful memories.

Hi Barbara. Glad to have you join the forum. I left the Manor about the time you moved in. Love to hear about your memories.

We lived on Eastwood Dr. I don't remember the number. Our apt. bldg was the one with a vacant lot beside it. We played softball, volleyball and all sorts of games there. I remember walking to the drugstore and grocery shopping with my mom at Thriftway. My little brother got his first haircut from Dave at the barbershop. During the summer we played outside from morning till night only going inside for meals. Sometime we would take a lunch and go to mansion hill. We loved going to the pool almost everyday during the summer. I try to tell my kids and grandkids about how wonderful it was growing up there but I don't think they get it. We lived there until after 7th grade and then we moved to Golf Manor. I went to Schroder Jr High(which I hated) the first part of 8th grade. We then moved to Swanee Trail where I went back to Lyon and finished 8th and 9th grade. We then moved to TN which was very difficult for me. All of my favorite childhood memories are from living in Stratford Manor. Some of the people I remember living there are Gary Gilmore, Ronnie and Duane Combs, Ronnie Wilson, Donna Fain, Craig(he lived upstairs from us but don't remember his last name), Larry Cox, Gary Manning, Monte Daugherty, Tony and Larry Estes, Patrick McQueary and Kris Ritchie. It seems I remember mostly boys. I don't know why that is haha! My dad used to call all of the the boys that lived there stratford manor boys. I think because when we moved to Golf Manor and Swanee Trail some of them would come see me and my sister. He would always say how did those Stratford Manor boys find us. My mom and dad both passed away last year. I stayed with my mom and took care of her for 5 months before she passed. She often talked about Stratford Manor and how much she loved it. I am so glad I found out about this group. It is great to talk about it to people who lived there and understand how special it was to live there. I would be very interested in coming to a reunion.
