Wikipedro/Pedro Pedigree: Leland Street Elementary School

Leland Street Elementary, Leland Street and Leland Park are all named for Leland Peck, youngest child of George H. Peck. I read somewhere that he was a sickly child, confined to a wheelchair most of his life. I can’t find where I read that, but census records show him and his sister Alma both still living with their father in their 40’s.

The front facades of Leland St. Elementary and Cabrillo Ave Elementary look almost identical. This is what Cabrillo’s front entry looked like when I was a student there.

Here is a picture of the new building and the new playground.

  1. WooHoo for Leland St. School! Those were some of the greatest (and simpler) days of my life. What a great neighborhood school. I miss those wonderful times.
