BRENTWOOD—The long-standing tradition of the 20 foot pole appearing on the grounds of the Archer School for Girls has continued for 30 years. The grounds it is on was once a Spanish Colonial Revival estate which housed a woman’s convalescent home.

 

The maypole is erected during May of every year and is one of the longest running traditions in the Brentwood community. Placed overnight, the maypole stays on the grounds through the end of May and is a Celtic symbol which signifies renewal.

 

The maypole first appeared on the grounds in 1981 during the night in order to cheer up the elderly residents of the original Spanish Colonial Revival building. On the last day of school, students from the Archer School dance around the maypole in celebration of their final school day.
