Standing One Room Schoolhouses in Frederick County, Maryland

Hampton School on Fingerboard Rd between Urbana and Adamstown. One of the best preserved.

You are Invited to join the Monocacy Archeology Society’s October Virtual Meeting.

Ralph Buglass of the Country School Association of America and organizer of their 2019 Annual Conference held at the Claggett Center in Frederick, will present a program about the schoolhouses here on Wednesday, October 13, beginning at 7:00 p.m.  Details on how to register for the Zoom meeting are below.

The meeting is open to the public.  Mr. Buglass of Rockville is also very involved in the preservation of the Sugarloaf area near the county line with Montgomery County.  Gordon Strong, who owned Sugarloaf Mountain built Halstead School for white children and Comstock School for black children in the early 1900s.  Both buildings are in good condition but are not open for visiting.

Frederick County has at least 36 standing schoolhouses, but none are restored as schoolhouses except for  the 180 year-old Rocky Springs Schoolhouse which is being restored as a schoolhouse. The fieldstone one-room building was used as a church on Sunday and school on weekdays from the late 1830s until the Chapel was built in 1882.

Hope you can join us!
