5th Avenue: The Hub of West Settlers Historic District

The school was once the city’s all-black high school. Jim Crow laws saw to that. The Palm Beach County School District wants to raze the site ¬†due to the decrepit condition of the buildings. Graduates of the school want to keep part of the site, thus preserving the history and significance.

The District is trying to work something out. The situation makes you wonder where the historical societies are on this one.
