Biographical/Historical Note

Girls' High School was founded in 1872 as part of the Atlanta Public School System. Mr. Bernard Mallon was the first principal of the school. The original school site was the DeSaul Building at the corner of Whitehall and Hunter Street where classes were held in four rooms on the upper floor and moved to the John Neal home in 1873. The first school society was the Browning Society, later renamed the Mallon Society in honor of the principal. In 1925 the school moved to Rosalia Street and in 1947 the school became co-educational and renamed Roosevelt High School. The school closed in 1985 and was sold to a development company. Additional administrative information about Girls' High School has not been determined.
