Needham B. Broughton High School

William Henley Deitrick received the 1930 American Institute of Architects outstanding school prize for the design of the Northern Italian Romanesque school. The ninety-five-foot-high tower marks the central entrance to the school, faced with ashlar stone and accented by cast-stone ornament, orange brick, red-orange tile, and green copper to create a rich exterior appearance. The school is named for Broughton, a Baptist church leader, printer, and community leader.

Date: 1929
