Ensley Community House
The two-story building featured an open brick arcade at the ground level and a shallow hipped roof. It was dedicated on Monday February 23, 1942 with a ceremony that featured "dignitaries from every section of the city, county and state." The main speaker at the dedication was economist Sherman Rogers.
The center, along with a 6-acre section of Ensley Park on which it sat, was sold to the Alabama Highway Department for construction of I-59. A new Ensley Community Center was constructed in the park in 1965.
