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.
