Varina District Historic Sites - Osborne School House

Osborne School House in Varina District, Henrico County, Virginia.

This structure having been converted in later years to a single family residence was, quite possibly, the earliest school house in the Varina District of Henrico County. Original plans called for the residence to be moved from its present location to preserve its historical value.

Dr. Henry Nelson, President of the Association for the Preservation of Henrico Antiquities, reported that the Osborne Schoolhouse has been resold as a residence and will remain at its present location. This is a partial victory in that the historic building will be preserved for the present.

  • Privately owned.
