The once proud Hillside Park High School—later the J.A. Witted Elementary School, then Operation Breakthrough—now stands abandoned. The second Hillside High School was destroyed in an expansion of North Carolina Central University. The third Hillside High School is now located on Fayetteville Street. Like most of Durham’s Rosenwald Schools, this important part of Durham’s history may soon be lost. The oval medallion on the left of the door is of Abraham Lincoln.
