Notes
Survey number HABS CT-320
Building/structure dates: 1918 initial construction
Significance: The Pequot School was built in 1917-18 and is one of only a few institutional buildings erected in Southport during the early twentieth century. Because of its principal use as an elementary school, a functional, utilitarian design for the interior was necessary. Second to this, however, was the desire for a structure with architectural interest; thus an exterior facade styled in the Neo-Classical manner. Characteristic of early twentieth-century Neo-Classicism, the structure is composed of rectangular sections, the main street facade is symmetrical about the central doorway, deep wooden eaves of classical design are supported by thin brackets, and an octagonal cupola is centered atop the principal roof ridge.
