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 structure.  This 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.
