:: Blakeley Schoolhouse ::

the Blakeley Schoolhouse was built in 1920, amongst nearly 100 other similar sized & regional one-room schoolhouses, which served an important, fundamental, and singular purpose – educating the youth of the particular community it was constructed in. This particular schoolhouse was paid for by the Julius T. Rosenwald Negro School Fund. Thus, it was a landmark public institution that would serve its tiny community for decades.
