The Schoolhouse has been re-named the "Amelia Sleet Burton Colored Schoolhouse". Ms. Burton, who attended the school as a child, taught there from the age of 16 until the school closed.  
 
Included inside of the schoolhouse is the Pastor Dr. Willie F. Newby, Jr. Memorial Library in commemoration of the pastor of First Baptist Church from 1988 to 2008. Pastor Newby’s vision was to renovate the schoolhouse during his tenure.
