Westfield High School
The school first held classes in the auditorium of Westfield #1 Elementary School on Miles' campus. Warren served as principal with Louise Moses, Eugene Jackson and A. J. McClung as faculty. Soon a building for the school was completed on Tin Mill Road and the faculty was expanded with shop, home economics, social studies, beautician, music and athletic training. In 1961 Westfield became the first Alabama high school to offer Russian language studies, taught by Loretta Jones.
The school was a victim of school desegregation. It closed in 1971 and its former students were bused to formerly all-white schools elsewhere. The closure signaled the dissolution of the remaining community as families relocated. The building was demolished in 1973.
