The former Field Elementary School building now houses the Columbia Public Schools’ Gifted Program and Early Childhood Education classes.
According to Missourian reports, Field Elementary opened in 1916 with six classrooms, rooms for domestic science and an office. It was named after the American author Eugene Field Sr., famous for his children’s poetry and humorous essays, including the poem, "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod."
