Lockeland Elementary School – Nashville TN

Description

C. K. Colley and Sons designed the “graceful yet understated Tudor Revival” (Van West, 2001, p. 102) school on the site of the former Lockeland mansion with the assistance of the Public Works Administration (PWA) during the Great Depression. The school grounds were expanded during the 1940s and 1961, and the school remains in use as a “Design Center” specializing in literature and Spanish language instruction.
