Walking was a common method of school transportation even before the creation of Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS).  It’s believed that students who lived within 3 miles of a school could walk from their home to school.  The figure https://edwinwashingtonproject.org/s/ewp/item/31137 shows the location of the school with a circle representing the area from which students could have walked, back and forth from their home to the school.  Travel by horse was also used and could have extended the travel distance.


According to Virginia Historic Landmarks Commission, original structure was erected in 1830's. Now in ruins.
