Alexander Street School
910 North Alexander Street
UTM 17 515657E 3898378N
This mid-1930s elementary school building, which
replaced an earlier wooden building, is a very
significant among the Uptown's historic resources as the Center City's most intact
pre-World War Two African American school building. The building
was not identified during the 2001 survey of industrial, transportation, and
educational resources. Neither was it identified by the 2002
"Survey of African American Buildings and
Sites in Mecklenburg County," which concentrated on rural resources.
It is now being given its appropriate recognition.
