Mid River School, 1890, Burnt Fort

Located adjacent to Burnt Fort Church, this schoolhouse was moved by oxcart in 1918 from the nearby Mid River community. Closed in 1922 and in disrepair for many decades, it was saved through the efforts of Stokes Davis and the Burnt Fort Chapel, Cemetery & Historical Association around 2001.

    The Boy Scouts held a camperee at Burnt Fort in the ’50’s. I recall that another name for the place was Mayfield Plantation. Next to where we camped was a fenced in cow pasture, and on our side was free flowing artesian water spouting from a common pipe. There was no turnoff.
