A Window into America's Past
Post Card Greetings from Old Louisville


"Girl's High School,  Louisville, Ky."
Post card mailed in 1916

In 1899, Female High School relocated from its old building near First and Chestnut to its new location in this building at the corner of Fifth and Hill Streets.  In 1912, the school's name was officially changed to Louisville Girl's High School.  The high school remained here until 1934, when it relocated again to Halleck Hall at Second and Lee Streets (the present DuPont Manual building).  The school was originally established in 1856 at Armory Place as a counterpart to Louisville Male High.

The building no longer exists.  We don't know when it was demolished, but all the buildings on the south side of Hill Street east of 6th Street were razed to make room for a widening of the street which, in fact, never happened.
