Eliza Battle Pittman Auditorium, St. Mary's School

Resembling a Lorraine cross to maximize the interior space, the Neoclassical Revival auditorium is ornamented with classical motifs, rusticated piers, cast-iron Corinthian columns, and heavy window cornices that add interest and animation to the design. The building bears the name of a student who attended the school in the 1880s.

Date: 1906
