White Hall School
At age 16, students were graduated and sent into the world, thus known as ‘Sixteeners”. The White Hall School closed in 1890 when enrollment became too small, and the remaining students were sent to other schools. The alumni “Sixteeners” of the White Hall School erected a small monument to the school in 1926 in Willow Park. originally, there was a small statue of a student in a military uniform on the top of the monument, but it disappeared years ago.
