Hopkins Graded School
Schools in rural communities rivaled churches as the premier social and cultural centers for the community. Hopkins Graded School is but one example of how rural white citizens received education during the early twentieth century. Originally built around 1897 for white students of all grades, the building functioned for fewer than twenty years and later became a teacherage, which housed the principal and his family.
