Notes
Survey number HABS MD-235
Building/structure dates: 1897
Significance: This building is significant for its architectural design, use as a school for black children, and its association with the architect, Alfred Mason. The building is notable for its size and design considering that it was built exclusively for black school children. Until the mid-twentieth century, Baltimore City Public Schools were racially segregated. It is significant that this school is large and well-designed. It exemplifies the interest taken in the late nineteenth century for educating black children.
