Children cross Independence street in front of Lorimier School in this undated photo from 1960 by G.D. Fronabarger.

This building was actually New Lorimier School. It opened its doors on Sept. 7, 1937, replacing the original Lorimier School built in 1871.

The school was used until 1976. The building was sold to the city of Cape Girardeau and became City Hall.
