NRHP Reference Number


The Hill Grove School provided primary education for students in the local African American community before public school integration occurred in Pittsylvania County in the 1960s. In 1912, Alec Cook and his wife, Emma, donated a one-acre lot near the rural community of Hurt for the school. The two-room frame schoolhouse was completed in 1915. A standing-seam metal roof covers the weatherboarded structure, which rests on a fieldstone foundation. The Hill Grove School continued in use until 1964, when it was abandoned and later acquired by the New Bethel Missionary Baptist Church.
