— Columbia Heights Heritage Trail —In the days of legally segregated public education (1862-1954), this school building was Central High, the gem of the School Board's white division. But by 1949, it had few students, as the post-World War II suburban housing boom had drawn whites away. Consequently, African American families outnumbered whites around Central.
