Reno School Saved?

According to the City Paper the Reno School in Tenleytown will receive close to $1 Million in city monies to help stabilize the structure.

The Reno School received landmark designation recently from the Historic Preservation Review Board after the Tenleytown Historical Society submitted an application. The structure served as the school for the African American enclave, Reno City, which was in the Tenleytown area in the late 1800's and early 1900's. The development was cleared out to make room for the Alice Deal and Woodrow Wilson schools. Councilmember Mary Cheh was able to get the City Council to reprogram the monies after savings were found in another area.
