Gibsonville School is a historic school building located in Gibsonville, North Carolina. It was built in 1923 and served grades K-12 from 1924 to 1974.[1] In 1965 an addition was added with a cafeteria and additional classrooms for elementary students. In 1974 the school saw it's last graduating class.[2] Beginning in 1975 the middle and high school students were transferred to other schools in Guilford County. The elementary students remained in the 1965 addition until the new Gibsonville Elementary School was completed in 2005.[3] The old Gibsonville School was officially closed in 2006 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2014.[4] In January 2015, this property was sold by Guilford County Schools to a preservationist group, Preservation North Carolina (PNC). The Gibsonville Museum and Historical Society put up a portion of the funds that purchased this property. PNC located and sold this asset to a historic developer in December 2017. As of a September 2021, this property has been rezoned and its development is pending finance and permitting.[5]

Nice page, Allan. A former high school in Shrewsbury MA (which looks quite a lot like this one) is also slated for development. It was a good idea to capture this information before it possibly becomes unrecognizable.

Keep up the good work!
