The Truth about Kenilworth’s Basement

The Truth about Kenilworth’s Basement

Kenilworth

Kenilworth opened its doors in 1920 and is the oldest continually operating elementary school in Phoenix. It survived the depression, World War II, Korea and Vietnam, and 30 years in the middle of a wasteland created by the delay in construction of the inner loop. When people talk about Kenilworth, they always comment about the basement and the interesting artifacts and oddities, such as the original 1920’s film projector or alumni photographs of notable community leaders such as Barry Goldwater and Margaret T. Hance. Others have spooky stories associated with the basement. Principal Anthony says the only scary thing down there is the amount of items accumulated from 1920 to the present day.
