Forrest City HS-1929

Forrest City High School-Was changed to the Junior High in 1931, and later changed to Elementary School, and now School Administration Offices.
Rosser Street-Forrest City, St. Francis County
Forrest City High School, built in 1915, replaced the brick masonry public school building that had been constructed in 1892. The new Forrest City High School, known locally as "Old Central," was designed by W.C. Lester and built by J.E. Hollingsworth. The original building featured a symmetrical front facade organized around a slightly protruding central entrance bay. Significant additions have been made to the original building, including the southern addition in 1928, the western gymnasium in 1934, and the classroom section at the western end in 1958. All additions have respected the essential Classical Revival character of the 1915 structure. Listed on the National Historic Register Oct. 8, 1992. Picture taken May 2006.
