Armstrong High has had a pretty amazing history–the first Richmond public school for African Americans (under the name “Richmond Colored Normal School”) and four different locations since 1909.
The 1951 building, which hasn’t been used since Armstrong moved to its current location on Cool Lane, will turn over the land for much-needed mixed-income housing and mixed-use development.
This week, a meeting rescheduled due to weather will give Armstrong alumni, Creighton Court residents, and other concerned community members an opportunity to get together and plan how best to commemorate the school.
Discuss the old building’s demolition, plans for the future, and what can be done to honor a place that was so important in the lives of so many.
