Center City High School - Escondido, CA, USA

When this Mediterranean Revival building first opened in 1925 it was known as Plymouth Hall and was used by the First Congregation Church, adjacent at that time.  It was designed by Louis John Gill, nephew of famous architect Irving Gill, and an original architect of the San Diego Zoo.  Purchased by the Escondido School District in 1959, it served as its district office.  Eventually it became an independent study high school and served in that capacity for 13 years.  The final graduating class of Center City High School was in 2009.  The building is now used as the district's adult education school.

Located at 240 S. Maple St.
