Inscription.  In 1922, the 14th Street School was built on this corner as a Colored Graded School. The four-story, Classical Revival style facility was located in the prominent African-American E. 14th Street neighborhood, and was soon expanded with a 2O-classroom addition doubling its size. Graduates include mayors, professional athletes and an opera singer. The school was integrated in 1970, closed in 1973, and became offices for the school system until it was demolished in 1977.
