Ballard-Hudson Senior High School was built in 1949 as the only high school in Macon for African Americans in grades nine through twelve. The schoolrepresents the merger of two schools: Ballard High School, a private school with roots in Lewis High School, established in 1868 by the American MissionaryAssociation, and Hudson High School, a public industrial high school. In 1970,the same year a federal court required the integration of all public schools in Georgia, Ballard-Hudson Senior High School was reorganized and renamed. Among noted Ballard-Hudson graduates are Georgia musicians Otis Redding and "Little Richard" Penniman.
