This school is architecturally significant in the history of the City of Hattiesburg because it is the largest and most sophisticated example of the Jacobethan/Tudor style in the city and is the only known design in the style by Robert Emmett Lee. Lee was Forrest County's foremost architect of the early twentieth century.
