About this collection

The original Stanton School was both the first school for African American children in Jacksonville and the first in the state of Florida. The school was named for Edwin M. Stanton, Abraham Lincoln's Secretary of War. The first two buildings were destroyed by fire, but the third was used for 15 years after which point it began to deteriorate and was replaced by a brick structure. Beginning as an elementary school, Stanton eventually welcomed students grades 1-12. In 1953, the school was again transferred to another building and was named New Stanton Senior High School.

Included in this collection are albums of newspaper clippings and photographs relating to New Stanton Senior High School.
