What's in a Name?

Hawthorne Photo
Hawthorne Elementary opened in August of 2010 and is named for 19th Century American author Nathaniel Hawthorne.
Nathaniel Hawthorne was an American short story writer and novelist. His short stories include "My Kinsman, Major Molineux" (1832), "Roger Malvin's Burial" (1832), "Young Goodman Brown" (1835) and the collection Twice-Told Tales. He is best known for his novels The Scarlet Letter (1850) and The House of the Seven Gables (1851). His use of allegory and symbolism make Hawthorne one of the most studied writers.  Hawthorne's works belong to the cultural movement called romanticism. His novels and short stories are cautionary tales.  Many of his works are inspired by Puritan New England. The new Hawthorne Elementary replaced a former building bearing the same name, which opened as a Junior High School in 1922.
