Adamsville Elementary History

Adamsville Elementary School began in 1884 as a small logcabin. The coming of the railroad and rapid population growth led to theuse of Black's Chapel Church as a school building.

In 1898 the county constructed on Alabama Avenue a white frame twostory building that served the Adamsville community for the next 22years.

A fire destroyed the school in 1920. A new building containing eightclassrooms and a lunchroom was completed in 1921. This building wasenlarged in 1942. An auditorium and more classes were added in 1949. Yetmore classrooms, an office and the school's first indoor restrooms wereadded in 1953.
