This is construction of South Point High School around 1950, according to Michael Mascari, of Richmond, Va. "The building above the construction was the old high school," he wrote. "When completed, the new high school held grades seven through 12, and the old high school became an elementary school for first through sixth grades. This was the only school that had sixth-grade classes, and all South Point students went there for sixth grade. In 1959, after the construction of the two new elementary schools, in South Point and Burlington, the old high school became a junior high school for grades seven and eight. The high school (building under construction) became a junior high school in the late 1980s after a new high school was constructed on High Street, which required the building above it in the photo (former high school and junior high school) to be demolished. The building under construction was demolished about a year ago after a new high school was constructed on Sand Road."
