With its impressive brick façade featuring lighter brick quoins, keystones, and jack arches, the Chase City High School is a fine example of Georgian Revival architecture. The school represents the late 19th-century period in Virginia education when the State Literary Fund made low-interest loans available for local school construction. Designed by Roanoke architect H. H. Huggins, the school was built in two phases, the first circa 1908 and the second in 1917. It was the first modern school building constructed in Chase City. The school continues to serve the community, having been recently rehabilitated for use as apartments.
