This is one of the oldest African American one-room schoolhouses surviving in Virginia. It was moved here for preservation from its original site one mile away. Although it was mostly attended by children of varied ages and grades, it also provided education for adults. Most of the furniture is original as are interior walls which contain the signatures and scribblings of the students. A wood stove kept the winter chill at bay with the help of cloth scraps tucked between the chestnut boards on the walls.
