Prior to the desegregation of the Alabama school system, this building was one of the schools for African-American children. Students from multiple counties would travel to this school, since there only a few available in North Alabama.
Researching the history of this school and the building was not easy. There is very little information about it on the internet and most of what I learned came from the local people.
The building is now being used as a storage facility and is not being maintained well.
That seems like such a waste to me. Here we have a building with great historical significance, just wasting away in obscurity.
If I could purchase the property, I would turn it into a civil rights museum. That seems to be a better way of honoring the history of this site.
