Home Park School was constructed in 1911 as an elementary school for the Home Park Neighborhood Atlanta. The two-story brick structure possesses classic architectural details. It was designed by Atlanta architect Edward Dougherty in an Italian Renaissance Revival style. The main entrance dominates the front facade welcoming you home. The school was closed in 1986 after 75 years of service. It then became State Street Academy Apartments. It was at this time that an apartment complex was constructed on the grounds.
