The Green McAdoo School in Clinton, Tennessee, was the community's segregated elementary school for African American children until 1965. The school was completed in 1935, and designed by Frank Barber of the firm, Barber & McMurry. It is now a museum and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Green McAdoo School deteriorated after its closure, but was reopened as a museum and cultural center in 2006. Federal grants and local government funding helped to pay for renovations to the building. A set of life-size bronze statues of the "Clinton 12," the 12 African American students who attended Clinton High School in the fall of 1956 when the high school was desegregated under court order, is displayed outside the school's front entrance.
