After an 1895 fire, it was rebuilt and named Central High School once also occupied by the Toledo University Manual Training School that opened in 1884. The facility closed in 1914 with the opening of Scott and Waite high schools. It reopened as Woodward Technical School and later became Vocational High. The building was razed in 1938 for construction of the Toledo Public Library.
