In the fall of 1960 a new school was opened in the Donelson area. Located on McGavock
Pike, the school was situated only one hundred yards from the meeting of the Stones and the
Cumberland Rivers. The campus site had once been part of the McGavock Estate, often called
Two Rivers Plantation. It was because of these influences that the school received its name.
Mr. Chester LaFever, principal, was joined by twelve teachers, a librarian, and a secretary
that first year. Starting with only the seventh and eighth grades, the school has added a grade
each year. Inthe fall of 1964 the final grade was included. The presence of the first graduating
class is indeed a milestone in Two Rivers history. The school enrollment has grown from four
hundred and twenty in 1960 to thirteen hundred and fifty students in 1965. English IV, French II,
Sociology, Physics, American Government and Economics, and Speech were added this year and
most likely, there will be other interesting curricular offerings in the near future. The rapid
growth of the student body has necessitated the building of new classrooms, a girls' gym, an
industrial arts room, a band room, and a stadium. The students at Two Rivers have seen the
school grow from ajunior high school into a full-fledged high school. Their pride has increased
from year to year in a school whose future development promises even greater achievement.

ber was cut and prepared at the sawmill
on the estate. Much of the furniture in the
home was imported from England and
France. Oriental rugs and ancestral por-
traits grace the four downstairs parlors
and in the entrance foyer two interesting
chairs once owned by Rudolph Valentino
are found. To step into this beautiful home
is to step from the harshness and reality
of today into the cool harmony and tran-
quillity of yesterday.
The original two-story home, built in
1802, still stands in perfect condition on the
property. The mansion house, built in 1859,
is saidto have been planned by the architect,
William Strickland. During the Civil War
the home narrowly escaped destruction by

In any school the force that holds the
student body together is that of school spirit,
and the spirit of Pirate rooters reflects their
pride in the general successes of Two Rivers
High as well as in the achievements of the
athletic teams. Both the cheerleading squad
and the student body have done much to en-
courage a more enthusiastic spirit. Re-
member the many fine pep meetings held
during the year? Building pride in a school
is an unfinished job because there are al-
ways new areas in which the students may
excel New doors of opportunity for ex-
ploration are constantly opening for Two
