South Graded School

South Graded School was located at 1001-1015 South Boulevard on the the corner of Morehead Street. Built in 1858, the South Graded School was originally the North Carolina Military Institute. During the Civil War, the institute served as both a hospital and a Federal Prison. It became the city's first tax-supported public school in Charlotte In 1883. In its latter years as a public school, it served only as an elementary school (D.H. Hill Elementary) for the South side of the city. In the early 1950s it was used for school maintenance supplies. The building was razed in 1954
