Map of "Colored" School Sites

Clicking on any of the schools will take you to information concerning that school.

Both the map and its corresponding notes are "works-in-progress."

Although many folks named the schoolhouses after geographical locations, public schools were officially referred to by their district and school number until consolidation of the schools took place in the mid-1940s and 1950s.  The sites of most of the eleven Freedmen's Bureau schools purported to be build between 1865 and 1968 are not included.  Some may never have been built; others were probably absorbed into the county system after 1872.  Other schools are waiting to be remembered and relocated in this history, and, of course, corrections and additions to what follows are encouraged.
