HISTORY: Originally located on Blanco Street at the foot of the hill where the Utility Bldg. (old school) is located. Moved to O'Grady Street where it was used to school the children of "Black" families. When public schools were integrated in the 1960's, these students no longer needed a separate school. The building was used by the school district for storage. Later it was sold to the Munoz family who remodelled it to be used as a residence.
