The city of Charlottesville made the announcement Friday, after the site received an award from the State and National Historic Designation.

Due to last year's excavation work, they found the historic significance of the school dates back further than originally thought to 1894.

“In addition to serving as an elementary school, it also served the citizens of Charlottesville in many traditional public services, such as, recreation and libraries,” said Rochelle Small-Tonie, Assistant City Manager.

Old Jefferson School was torn down in the fifties after the New Jefferson School was built.
