West End High School – Nashville TN

Description

West End Middle School in Nashville, Tennessee was originally erected as a High School with the assistance of funds provided by the Public Works Administration (PWA). West End was constructed in Colonial Revival style, with 35 classrooms, 8 of which were science labs. The “horizontal, three-story central block” and “soaring 122-foot high cupola” was described as a west Nashville landmark (Van West, 2001, p. 103). The building also contained a library, cafeteria, gymnasium, and auditorium with 63×28 foot stage. It was converted to use as a middle school in recent years.
