Nystrom Elementary joins National Historic Registry

Richmond’s Nystrom Elementary School was recently placed on the National Register of Historic Places, in tribute to its singular heritage forged during Richmond’s WWII Homefront heyday. Nystrom School served the South Richmond community during the height of Richmond’s shipbuilding era, with enrollment exceeding 3,000 students by 1944 and the school sometimes operating on ‘quadruple-shifts’ in order to accommodate all the students.
