History: The original mission of East Carolina Teachers Training School was to train teachers for Eastern North Carolina. To facilitate this goal a practice school was built in 1914. The city provided the funds for the construction of the original four-room model school and later East Carolina repaid the city for the construction. Students could walk to the school through the wooded western portion of campus, and develop their teaching skills by working with Greenville youngsters. A second story was added to the building in 1917.Construction of the new practice school (later called Wahl-Coates) in 1927 gave student teachers a more modern building.

Additions: 1917 - second story addition, Willard G. Rogers
