General note:
Although city directories from the late 1910s and 1920s note that the school was located at 81 Hill Street, other sources beginning in the 1950s, list the address as 125 Hill Street. 125 Hill Street is also the modern day address of Asheville's Isaac Dickson Elementary School. It is very possible that the original structure was abandoned at some point between 1919 and the 1950s. Google Maps shows no structure at 81 Hill St.
