Morgan Elementary School was built in 1925 in the Cherry neighborhood, one of the first suburbs developed for black families. The school was closed in the late 1960s as part of the school system’s integration plan. It was reopened by the school system in 1973 and is now a school for emotionally disturbed adolescents.
