History Lesson 

The Guy S. Potts Building at 701 E. Main St. housed FCPS district offices from 1970 through 2020. When it opened in 1928 as Henry Clay High School, it was the largest city high school in Lexington. After Henry Clay moved to Fontaine Road, the Main Street facility was renovated for district offices and renamed for Potts, the superintendent from 1961 to 1984.
