Description

Front facade of what appears to be the first high school building in Selma. The school began operating in September of 1897 at the intersection of McCall Avenue and Arrants Street. By 1904 the building was crowded and in 1911 voters approved a bond issue to build a larger high school on the same campus. In 1913 the original high school was moved across Arrants Street to serve as an annex to East Side School, which was renamed Garfield School in 1914 in honor of James A. Garfield, twentieth United States president. The old high school was called Garfield Annex and later the Jefferson Building.
