New Bethel School, Veazey

I’ve only been able to determine that this was a schoolhouse associated with New Bethel A. M. E. Church at Leslie Mill. The style indicates early 20th century construction. It’s a significant historical school, from a time when churches set the standard for the education of African-American children.

      Cyndi, you may well be correct. The Rosenwald Database at Fisk doesn’t show it, but that is, unfortunately, not a very user-friendly resource.
