Huntington School.
Huntington school Is located In
school district No. ?> in Jack's town
ship about two miles from Enoree
river. It has 1G acres of land?about
half in cultivation.
In 1817 the trustees, who were
George Dillard, Joseph Garret, David
Reader, and Edward Janes, bought
4 acres from Win. Dillard for fifteen
dollars and the same year, 3 acres
from Elijah Cabancss for the same
amount. |
In 1835 they bought 4 acres more
from John Hairston for twenty dol
lars. The other five acres were ac
quired later but the writer can't lo
cate the papers. The land was deed
ed to the trustees of "Hunting Acad
emy."
The school has had a varied career,
Bometlmee It had as many as 60 pu
pllB and at otherB only a handful.
From 1908 to 1911 there was only one
white child of school ago in the dis
trict. There is ono family who has at
tended that same school for five con.
secutlve generations. It has only 11

The school la situated In the er
treme southern end of the county,
twen'ty-flv^ miles from the county
seat.
There are no old records to show
the exact date of Its being built, but
from what we nre able to learn from
the older residents of the district, it
has been here about forty years. This
has never been a very large school,
for the past twenty years, not more
than twenty-five pupils enrolled, and
in the last ten years, not more than
ten.
In 1910-11 there was only one pu
pil, in 1913 there are nine.
In all the years there have been
some excellent teachers, many of
them college graduates.
The school children are too small
to take part In the Corn club or To
mato club, they being first, second
and third grade children.
The School Journal is taaen by ev
ery family represented except one.
One child will get the perfect attend
ance button.
In the summer of 1912 the voters of
the district got together and voted a
special three mill tax to he used for
school purposes thereby lengthening
the school term from five to seven
months.
Also there is a nice now building,
costing $:1T>0.00, the school lot hav
ing been glveu by Mr. B. C. Briggs of
Clinton. The trustees, the children
and all who are interested in the
school, wish to thank Mr. Illings for
Iiis generosity and also Mr. PlttB and
Miss Cray for their kindly interest in
the school.
