A red and white sign near some bushes. The sign reads, "Hall Community."
The area around the former Charles M. Hall High School and Alcoa Middle School, now the Alcoa City Center, was named for the man, Charles M. Hall, who discovered the secret of smelting aluminum economically which led to the founding of the Alcoa, Inc. The school was located near a number of company houses occupied mostly by African-Americans and also the site of the former Commercial Building.
