School no longer in operation
Lee was built in 1906 and was named for Civil War Confederate General Robert E. Lee (1807-1870). It ceased operation as a school in 1971. For a time it housed the district's Instructional Resource Center (now based at the old Ish Elementary). The building was sold to the City of Little Rock in 1997, was extensively renovated and now houses the Little Rock Neighborhood Resource Center. For his leadership in establishing the center, Little Rock City Director Willie L. Hinton was honored in June 2005 when it was renamed the Willie L Hinton Neighborhood Resource Center.
