High school memories from Prince Avenue

Martha DeBeaugrine wrote a fascinating piece in Flagpole about her memories of Athens High School on Prince Avenue, the predecessor to Clarke Central High School on Milledge Avenue. She explains that the main building has been demolished and that the site is now occupied by Wendy's and Captain D's between Finley Street and Hill Street. The first time I ever saw the photo accompanying this article, I felt sad that such a grand building (formerly a courthouse) was gone and replaced with fast food buildings. Anyway, I had the pleasure of becoming acquainted with Ms. DeBeaugrine for a couple years when we were neighbors, and I appreciated the time she shared with my family talking about various topics.
