Can anyone tell me any information on the old high school that is supposedly "under" the current Greeneville High?

The original school was built around 1880. A newer school was to be built in the 1940s. When they built the new school, they brought in rock and dirt and buried the old school and built the new (the old part now) school on top of the old school.

I just know that there is an old part and some way to get into it from the current one. What is in the old part and what does it look like?

Before Greeneville High School moved to its current location, it was on Main Street near the old Kiser Funeral Home and Nathaneal Greene Museum. That building became the Greeneville Junior High when the current GHS was built around the early 1950's. It later housed the Water Department until the water dept. moved to North Main near the railroad overpass. I don't believe that the current GHS location has a school under it because the school that would be under it was located on Main Street near the car museum. The car museum was the location of City Dodge 40-50 years ago.

There is an "old school" under the current school (I go there). The original school was flooded. Only a part of the school remains. Part of the original school was renovated and we now use it as classrooms. The only part that remains is the old locker room(s)/bathroom, and I believe 1 classroom. There is I believe two ways into it. One is in the cafe. I'm not sure where the other entrance is. They had to rebuild and renovate because it was flooded, and too much damage was done. I did research, and asked a few teachers. Some denied that there was one obviously, they aren't supposed to tell students about it. But quite a few teachers have keys to it. It is very dark and dirty down there! Used condoms and such... Oh, and If you are caught trying to enter, you won't be suspended, but expelled.

There are parts of the 1950 school still there. There were 2 old locker rooms under the old gym, but no 1880 school.
