Inscription. Built in 1924 in the tutor Gothic style, Carr Central High School was designed by architect William A. Stanton. This building once housed the administrative offices of the school district and kindergarten, elementary, and junior high school classes. In 1932 Carr Central became a high school, and then reverted back to a junior high in 1959 until its closing in 1979. Carr Central High School was named in honor of John P. Carr, former superintendent of Vicksburg public schools
