Inscription.  An African American community and church were established nearby in the mid 19th century. In 1918 the Benevolent Sons and Daughters of Abraham, a mutual aid society, purchased and donated land on this site for a two-room school which was built according to a Rosenwald Program design, the most modern and progressive of rural school plans at the time. The school was used until 1955.
