Inscription.  

Completed in 1922 on East Winchester Street, Union High School was Sumner County's first and only secondary school for African-American youth. The African-American community, public, and Rosenwald Funds provided funding for construction. The first class was graduated in 1924. In 1951, the high school grades moved to this “new” building. Due to court ordered desegregation of the county's school system, the last senior high school class was graduated in 1970.
