Dunbar School was built on this site in 1924. Dr. W.A. Caldwell was its first principal. In 1947, the Old Medical College on St. Anthony Street was remodeled and became Central High School. Dr. Benjamin Baker was named principal. In 1955, the schools switched locations when Dunbar Junior High School moved to St. Anthony Street and Central High School was relocated here. Despite segregation, a culturally diverse curriculum evolved exposing students and the community to the arts. The school closed in 1970 as part of the Mobile school desegregation plan. Jonathan T. Gaines was principal. The building is presently part of Bishop State Community College.
