1. Indian School in Fulton Marker
Inscription.  In 1928, parents of students at the Fulton neighborhood's white Robert Fulton School objected to the presence of several Virginia Indian students. At that time, the only school's for Indians in Virginia were located in rural tribal communities. The Fulton School's principal subsequently supervised an ungraded school for the Indian students in a house owned by Richmond City Schools on Nicholson Street. From eight to ten Pamunkey and Chickahominy children were educated there by three white teachers until 1930, when the school closed because the Indian families moved from the neighborhood.
