Cumberland Hill School
A Texas Historical Commission marker, erected in 1971 on the premises of the old Cumberland Hill School reads:
During the middle of the 20th century this was the principal school for Dallas' "Little Mexico" neighborhood and although it was considered a "melting-pot" school, at times as much as 92 percent of the school's students were Hispanic.
Today the building is used as office space for private businesses.
(Author's Note: When I took this photograph, I did not notice the two men up on the roof. I have no idea what they were doing there!)
