Roxalana School

Roxalana School

Roxalana Grade School in Dunbar WV. Located on Roxalana Road near Roberts Road, this school was considered the most dangerous for children due to the proximity to the highway. I believe the street view below is the original stairway to the school.  The current building is an apartment, a remodeled part of the school.

Ruth School

Ruth School

RUTH Grade School. Ruth Is just past Walmart on Corridor G on 214 at Trace Fork. This is a special post because not only do you see the school, but what it looked like before the school was installed. It appears that the Ruth School operated only between 1962 until about 1969.  The last photo was taken for appraisal purposes when the school board purchased the property in 1961.

Below is what the property looked like before the school was installed.
