7915 West Markham Street

 

The Pulaski County Special School District built a school on this site in the early 1920s when this area was outside the city limits of Little Rock. By the 1950s the city limits had expanded to include the Brady neighborhood. The original building was replaced with the present structure in 1960. Brady Elementary was annexed by the Little Rock School District in 1961, and a second structure was added in 1963. A renovation of the entire building took place in 2002. The school was named for Andrew Brady.
