The Historic Fourth Ward School foundation has been diligent with the care, restoration and interpretation of this significant building. However, as with any large and historic building extensive projects are the norm and it has been 15 years since our last one. As we expand our programing, school tours, educational exhibits and outreach, the building remains our number one priority. It is our largest and most important artifact.
