    The Crieve Hall area, is named for the mansion originally bought by steel tycoon Herbert Farrell and his wife, the heiress of the Maxwell House fortune, in 1925. The couple put the home up for sale in the 1940’s but there were no buyers so in the early 1950s, Mrs. Farrell ordered the contents of the house to be sold at auction, and the mansion demolished. The land surrounding the estate was cut up into generous sized lots and sold to housing developers. One parcel was selected for The Crieve Hall Elementary School, which was built on a 17-acre campus in 1954 on a hill directly across from the old mansion.
