South Hi Mount Elementary School
4101 Birchman Ave. - 1936; 1949; 2003
This school and its landscaping was a Works Progress Administration project and it was designed by Hubert Hammond Crane. The general contractor was Quisle and Andrews. The building's design is a Moderne interpretation of the Colonial Revival Style and it features a four-bay colonnade with pedimented entries on each end. On the interior, the auditorium sits between the entries. This colonnade forms the central block of the school which is topped by a gable roof and a Colonial Revival lantern. Two story classroom wings are on each side of the central block. A small cafeteria addition was completed in 1949 to the west of the main building. In 2003, a larger two story addition was added to the southeast and a cafeteria expansion on the west.
