The Hardy School

Clover Hill Village - Appomattox County, Virginia 

After the Civil War the Virginia Constitution provided for the establishment of public funded free schools. The Hardy School dates from the early 1900s and is believed to be the first publicly funded school in Appomattox County. The school was dismantled at its original site by the Appomattox County Historical Society in 1998 and moved to Clover Hill Village.

The ringing school bell warned students that classes were about to begin.
