Many schools across the country were been built on top of closed dumps (landfills) containing cancer-causing chemicals. Has there been historical research of Robert Gray Elementary School to determine if the property was formerly a dumpsite?

Finding out if there is an environmental cause of the cancers is as important as finding a cure. A 100-year chain of title of Robert Gray Elementary School property and research of old maps will provide information as to whether the land was previously used as a dumpsite.
