Point Pleasant School

VLR Listing Date


NRHP Listing Date


NRHP Reference Number


Point Pleasant School was built in 1911 for the local Carroll County community’s students in grades one through seven. Although its doors closed in 1948-49 when the county consolidated its schools for the first time, the building still stands as an important vestige of the county’s early educational history. The structure is exceptionally well-preserved, embodying distinctive period characteristics, making it a rare surviving one-room schoolhouse, a building type that has largely disappeared from the American landscape. At the time of its listing in the registers, the schoolhouse was unaltered from its appearance in a 1927 photograph. Schoolhouses such as Point Pleasant were important in the educational and civic life of Virginia’s rural communities for generations of students.
