Note:

The immense Southern Colonial style building, surrounded on three sides by towering Ionic porticoes, began as a school but became a private hospital and then a private residence owned by E. G. Moore. For the small community of Elm City, such an imposing building was an especially outstanding landmark. It was demolished in the 1970s.
