Booker T. Washington Middle School for the Arts. Listed on the National Historic Register, this beautiful Richardsonian Romanesque Revival building was built in 1895 with subsequent additions in 1910 and 1951. The school was designated a Turnaround School in 2010 and received federal funding for improvements. The restoration of this space was comprehensive, striving to undo the damage caused by inappropriate additions over the years.
The first major transformative project at the school was the renovation of the library, which consisted of new stacks and a separate computer room. The prior renovation in the early 1980s had dropped an 8’ ceiling, concealing the top panels of the windows. Completed in 2010.
