Long Description:
Houston ISD

"On September 18, 1898, Harvard Elementary School opened its doors. It was a one room wood building. In 1902, two rooms were added to the building. This enlarged, three-room frame building was still serving in 1911 when a view book of the Heights printed a picture of the first brick unit beside the old building."

The building is red brick with white cement accents. At intervals across the top of the building is white cement decorations. Above the entrance is a large swag of either flowers or fruit. The decoration around the entry has Harvard Elementary School engraved in the center and there is a smaller swag decoration.
