Physical and Map Location



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 at https://edwinwashingtonproject.org/s/ewp/item/31145 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.


Was built to replace Waters School. See Emerick in 6.6 Student Enrollment Cards\EnrollmentCardsAll\School White Records\E.

At a meeting of the School Board on Feb 28, 1940, it was resolved to close the school and transport children to Hillsboro. Source: EWP 8.1 Loudoun County School Budget for Fiscal Year starting July 1, 1940, Pg 29.
