The Torrence Lytle School, located at 302 Holbrooks Road, Huntersville, N.C., is under contract for sale. Listed in the National Register, the buildings will be turned into apartments. Due diligence has to occur, but HLC Staff is very optimistic that these buildings, that were the high school for African Americans in North Mecklenburg from the 1930s to the 1960s, will be preserved.
