Byrd School, the first school building north of the Columbia River, was built in 1855. Recently, developers of Lakewood’s Echelon Apartments at Steilacoom Boulevard and Lakewood Drive, erected a marker recognizing the school’s site inside the apartment complex. Additionally, another marker noting the school’s nearby location was erected years ago on what today is the Clover Park Technical School campus. The marker is on the north side of a building at the west end of the campus behind the fence next to Steilacoom Boulevard. The new marker will be formally unveiled in the near future.
