The buildings at Poplar and Walnut that are known as the Historic High School and now serve as the administrative offices for Collierville Schools are getting a face lift. A portion of buildings constructed in the 1970’s is being torn down and the original Historic High School which houses the Collierville Schools administration is undergoing building system upgrades. The building that is being torn down had become too costly to renovate and maintain and is not part of the buildings that has historical significance.
“This land has been the site of education in Collierville since the late 1800’s,” said Derek Honeycutt, Director of General Services. “There are a lot of memories associated with the historic building, therefore we are not only preserving the building but improving it too.”
