Very Early photo of Crossville Elementary School circa 1930s
When this photo was taken it was simply known as City School
One of the unique things about the school was the art work on the walls that was painted by Joe Edd Hodges, long time art teacher at the school. Hodges was raised in Crossville and graduated from the old CCHS.
The art murals has since been painted over and the building is used now as the school's administrative offices.
