Neighborhood: Buckhead

This downtown high school is the alma mater of many of Atlanta's most famous citizens, including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Built by architect Eugene C. Wachendorff, the building is a typical example of the elaborate revival styles popular in the 1920s. Standing three stories above the surrounding neighborhood, the structure's Byzantine elements lend a medieval cathedral flavor to the school. Five double-tiered terra cotta arches front the building, which was erected in 1922 using locally manufactured brick.
