Property History
The school originally served children in first through eleventh grades. Kindergarten and 12th grade was added later. From 1973 until it closed in 2006, only the first floor was used for elementary school grades.

The building will require a complete rehabilitation including structural repairs, new roof, all new mechanical systems. The roof of the rear south wing has collapsed. The school is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is ideal for market-rate residential or other uses compatible with the adjacent new elementary school.

Property Description
Constructed in 1924 in the Colonial Revival-style, the Old Gibsonville School is a stately two-story building situated in a park-like setting on the edge of Gibsonville’s quaint downtown and a mile away from Elon University. Designed by Burlington architect Gustav Larsen, the school initially consisted of the front five bays with a stair tower at either end. Two-story wings were added in the 1930s creating a U-shape plan and an inner courtyard. The school was remodeled in the 1960s with metal windows and a more streamlined façade while retaining the classical front entrance with broken portico and urn finial. Another two-story wing was added to the rear north wing. There is a partial basement under the south side of the main building.

Several original features remain on the interior including wood floors, transom windows over several of the classroom doors, closets with doors that open vertically, plaster walls, and bathroom and water fountain fixtures on the second floor.
