Side view of the Huntersville Grade School in Huntersville, W.Va. The two-story school was built in the late 1880s to replace the Huntersville Academy on land given by Charles Grose. Mr. Grose’s house is barely visible to the right of the photo. This school building, with grades one through three on the first floor and grades four through six on the second floor, was in use until 1968. When it closed, it was the last of the one and two room schools in Pocahontas County. It has since been restored and is open to the public for tours during Huntersville Traditions Days.
