Caption: "North Carolina D.A.R. Dormitory for Girls, Crossnore School, Inc., Crossnore, N. C." Verso: "Pub. By Asheville Post Card Co., Asheville, N.C."; The Cooper Building was the "big girls dorm" and was home to Anne Hall Whitt Thompson, famed author of 'Suitcases'. The downstairs lobby was once the scene of Saturday night square dances. The Cooper Building served as the high school for Crossnore Academy before the Wayne Densch Education Building was constructed.
