Bass Name


Bass High School was built in 1923 as a Junior High School serving Inman Park, Little Five Points, Morningside, East Atlanta, Kirkwood and Druid Hills.

The first principal, J.H. Smith, suggested the school's name, William A. Bass. William A. Bass was born in 1832 and served as a Confederate Captain in the War Between the States. Mr. Wilbur Joe Scott became principal in 1929 and became the High School Principal when the school was changed to a high school in 1947. The school was closed in 1990 and converted to apartments known as The Bass Lofts in 1998.
