Long Description:
This building, probably built as a World War I barracks, was a portable classroom at the all white Tarpon Springs elementary School for about 20 years. In 1942 school officials moved the building to the Union Academy campus, the established elementary school for 'colored' students in Tarpon Springs. While there the flexible building served as a classroom, cafeteria and home economics room for more than 20 years.
