National Landmark Transformation
December 4, 2018
We are honored to be a part of this National Landmark Transformation. The Howard High School Landmark sits in the heart of a wonderful city and will stand tall and proud for the next 100+ years.
The images in the link provided below give side-by-side views of both the original and current spaces within the project. The black and white images were taken soon after the building’s completion in 1927. The color images were taken as the school reopened following the 2018 renovation.
These photos illustrate the programmatic evolution of the school. Very few rooms remained serving the same purpose as the original layout. The cooking room, wood shop, laundry room, music room and a few more were transformed in either multi-function spaces or renovated to fit the needs of students in today’s world, such as driver’s education and more classroom areas for multi-use. Although there were multiple changes over the intervening nine decades, these photos highlight the care in which the National Landmark transformation help to preserve, restore and revive both the structure and spirit of this historic school to serve the needs of 21st century Howard High students.
