It depends on which Williston you mean.

The 1953 Williston building (now Williston Middle School) was designed by Charles H. Boney.

The 1937 building (now Gregory School of Science, Mathematics and Technology) was designed by his father, Leslie N. Boney Sr., with U.A. Underwood as contractor. That building replaced the 1931 Williston building, designed by the Wilmington architectural firm of Lynch and Foard, which was destroyed by fire on May 6, 1936.

Williston traces its history to a freedmen’s school opened in 1866 by the American Missionary Society.
