Constructed in 1913 as the Reese Street School, the school was later renamed Athens Industrial and certified by the state in 1919 as Georgia's first four-year African-American high school. The building was modern for its time, equipped with steam heat. Athens Industrial later moved to a new location and underwent a name change as well; the original building was sold. The Athens Community Career Academy is now housed in the former Athens High and Industrial School.
