RAC30 Shrine Hill

Description

This aerial photograph shows the area where Patrick Henry High School is located today. During the 1920s, the pasturelands served as an early airfield known as Shrine Field. The land was owned by the Shriners in hopes of erecting a large Masonic complex on the site. The main intersection would be that of Grandin Road and Brandon Avenue.
