Inscription. After the Civil War, the constitution of 1869 established a statewide system of free public schools in Virginia. Several new schools in Fauquier were identified by an assigned number. Number 18 was built on land donated by Samuel F. Shackleford. From the time of its construction in 1887 until 1910, this one-room schoolhouse served local white children. When they moved to a newer school in the nearby village of Marshall in 1910, Number 18 then served African American students until it closed in 1964. Number 18 stands today as a rare example of a once-common schoolhouse type.
