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


"Halleck Hall.  Louisville, Ky."
Post card mailed in 1938

When this card was sent, Halleck Hall, built in 1934 on the approximate site of the earlier Masonic Widow's and Orphan's Home, contained Louisville Girl's High School as well as the Louisville Junior High School.  The last class of Girl's High graduated in 1950.  That year, the school became coed and merged with DuPont Manual High School, the name by which it is most commonly known today.

The building, named for educator Rueben Post Halleck, is located at 2nd and Lee Streets. The residential area east of the school (right in this picture) have been replaced with Manual's athletic fields, and the area behind the school has since been taken over and rebuilt as part of the University of Louisville campus.
