Read a history of the neighborhood From Prospect Reservoir to Johnnie B. Wiley Pavilion.
About 1900, a high school was built at Masten Place, a small hillside park in the district. Today the building houses the City Honors School, known throughout the state for its academic excellence.
Also situated on this high ground was a reservoir, the basin upon which the "Rock Pile" (War Memorial Stadium) was built. It is now a large recreational field with a track and baseball diamonds.
