Historical note:
This "New High School" school was completed in 1919 and was named David Millard High School. However, by the mid 1920s, David Millard was already outgrowing its facilities, so another new Asheville High School, designed by Douglas Ellington, was built between 1927 and 1929. This structure is still used today as Asheville's High School, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1996. As for the 1919 David Millard High school structure, it no longer exists, and its former site is currently covered by One Oak Plaza and the extension of Charlotte Street. http://go.ncsu.edu/asheville_h.s.; http://go.ncsu.edu/western_nc_edu; http://go.ncsu.edu/asheville_h.s._wiki
