Barrett Daycare Center To Close August 16th

A city tradition that’s been around since the Depression era will close its doors next month. The Janie Porter Barrett Early Learning Center has been educating kids who are five or younger since 1935. The board that oversees the Barrett Center says the Ridge Street facility will close at 6 p.m. on August 16th. The center is named for longtime educator Janie Porter Barrett, who died in 1948.
