Inscription.  Wheeler School, a one room school, was built in the late 1860's on the farm currently owned by the Harrison Family near Alexandria. Mr. W. E. B. DuBois became the first instructor at the school. In fact, it was the beginning of his long successful career in the education field. He traveled the world promoting education.
