Booker T. Washington School

The school was built in the African American neighborhood called Northtown with land donated from William Wesley Mitchell. Mitchell develpoed his property located outside of the original city square mile creating a neighborhood for the growing Mexican American population and the African American population giving them the opportunity to become home owners for the first time. This photograph shows the school before additions were made to expand the original two-room brick school.
