Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in, sometimes briefly.

Sulphur Springs School

The Dickenson County VA Historical Society kindly supplied me with the following information about this school (it wasn’t available anywhere on the web):
“Sulphur Springs School was built in 1875 on land donated by William Sutherland.  The original building was sold in 1907 to John Wright; a new building was erected in spring of 1907.  One of the first teachers listed was in 1877 – William F. Grizzle.
If you want more information, a story was written and appears in “The School and Community History” published by Mountain People and Places.  The Historical Society does have a few of these books for sale at $45 each, plus shipping and handling.  It is our understanding that no more of these books will be printed and we purchased these books used.”

The school is on Hwy 625 near Tiny VA at 37.10502, -82.23430:
