Three Chopt District Historic Sites - Ridge School

Ridge School, before 1907, in Three Chopt District, Henrico County, Virginia.

Ridge School began in 1878 at Ridge Baptist Church, then known as the Meeting House. This quaint schoolhouse replaced the one-room building which burned during 1903. This photograph was taken before 1907, the year a two-story addition was made to the front.
