Old Mount Vernon High School To Get Renovated

Mount Vernon High School has moved closer to Phase 1 of renovating and reusing the existing structure recently. Supervisor Dan Storck (D-Mount Vernon) organized a virtual meeting with the community and designers to discuss the plan and listen to ideas. Storck said, “It’s just an amazing building we have on the Richmond Highway corridor. This is part of the redevelopment of this part of the highway.”

According to Mount Vernon Gazette, “The Original Mount Vernon High School was built in 1939, a classic example of Colonial Revival architecture. The county-owned facility is located on Richmond Highway on a 22-acre property that was once part of George Washington’s estate. In 1987, the Virginia Department of Historic Resources determined that the high school property was eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The school was listed on the Virginia Historic Landmarks Register in December 2017, and in the National Registry of Historic Places in May 2018. The approximately 140,000-square-foot Mount Vernon High School facility consists of the main high school building and several smaller buildings to the west and south of the main structure. There are two athletic fields to the southeast of the property that are scheduled for community use.”

As per Mount Vernon Gazette, “Phase I is a plan to turn the main building into a learning facility with a “multigenerational use,” Storck said, under a theme called, “Pathways to Opportunity.” The pathways fall under a loose plan to live, work and connect. Along with an educational portion, there could also be senior housing, non-profit space, and a playground. Some of it has been renovated and is in use now. “Make it a place everybody is going to want to come to,” Storck said.”
