Caze School by Pat Sides

School bells were ringing on South Green River Road long before that part of Evansville was annexed and developed residentially.

This one-room school was erected in 1891 on property once owned by George W. Caze (Case), an early settler who owned 40 acres around the present site of Green River Road and Pollack Avenue in Knight Township. In 1925, the building was razed and replaced by a slightly larger one, but by the early 1950s, the neighborhood’s soaring growth forced students to attend classes in shifts or in the church next door until more rooms were added.  

Township schools merged with city schools in 1958 to form the Evansville School Corporation; two years later, Caze became a K-8 school and was enlarged again.
