Clinton in Prince George's County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The school was closed in 1909 after area residents requested that a new school be built in a more accessible location. Subsequently, the property was sold and the structure was altered to serve as a dwelling; however, despite the alterations, it still retains the exterior appearance of a typical late 19th century schoolhouse. In 1962, the school and 500 acres were conveyed to The Maryland-National Capital Park & Planning Commission and are now a part of Cosca Regional Park.
Historic Property of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission.
