From Another Time
Lottsburg--The Holley-Graded School established by Sallie Holley in 1868 to teach the children of former slaves. This was the third school on the site. The money was raised within the local black community and was run by an eleven member Board of Trustees from the African-American community. Fund raising started in 1914 and this school opened in 1933. No longer in use the building is still owned by the trustees.
