This school was one of the
feeder schools for Culleoka High. It was located down Sheepneck Road about 2 miles east of Culleoka. From Culleoka go east out Lewisburg Highway (Hwy 373)
and turn south (or right) onto Sheepneck Road. Travel about 1/4 mile and look
own your right for the school site. I was told the building was an old
rock building and that a pile of rocks still marked the site of the school.
However, I was not able to locate the site nor conclude the building was rock
construction. The school building shown above was clearly a clap board siding
news clipping was saved by the mother of John Sharpe. I presume this to be
a Columbia Herald Newspaper Article, but there is no indication of that on the
article. Imagery by John Sharpe, a resident of Maury County. Forwarded to
this site by Gary Hood who runs a Web site of Maury County items of interest.
