Inscription.  Hillside High opened as a school for black students in 1921 at Pine and Umstead streets on land donated by John Sprint Hill. It moved in 1950 to a larger building, the former Whitted Junior High School, at this location. In 1996, Hillside High located to a new building at 3727 Fayetteville Street, and this property was acquired by NCCU. The old school building was razed in 2004 to make room for the university's Mary M. Townes Science Building and Biomanufacturing Research Institute and Technology Enterprise.
 
Erected by North Carolina Central University.
