This page is an expanded version of page 12 of our yearbook.

Rankin Hall

Currently the east wing is now housed by Morganton's Regional Resource Center under the auspices of
the NC DHHS serving 13 counties. The west wing is housed by the NC Vocational Rehab. and Early
 Intervention is housed in the middle wing. (Info provided by John Smith)
Previously was used as a Recreation Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing - Jimmy Autrey
(Webmaster's note: presumably by the Morganton Division of Parks and Recreation Department).

Hoey Hall aka Upper School
Built in 1939 (renovations currently in progress). After the Great Fire of West Hall on the same
site, the bricks from West Hall were used to construct Hoey Building. After it was completed, it
was still named West Hall when NC Governor Clyde Hoey designated emergency funds to build
the new school, henceforth renamed after the Governor - Jim Autrey

Hoffmeyer Hall
The cafeteria of Hoffmeyer Hall was oftentimes used for Sports, Jr/Sr Banquets as well as
Homecoming functions.

McCord Building aka SUB (Student Union Building)
Completed in 1967, the top floor was used for the girls physical education and the bottom floor
was used for various student functions. It also had two bowling lanes which made NCSD the
only school in the good ole US of A that has bowling lanes on campus - Jimmy Autrey

official duties as Superintendent.

Underhill Gymnasium aka New Gym
Before the McCord Building was built, a lot of student functions were held in the basement.
