A building made of Sand Mountain stone was erected in 1936 to serve as a school for the children of Dade County on Sand Mountain. It had four classrooms with a combination auditorium. It also had a lunchroom and library. It furnished educational advantages to many pupils, who were more or less deprived of a modern school heretofore. The school was located on top of Sand Mountain, west of Trenton, a short distance from White Oak Gap.


Teachers in 1936 were: G.C. Austin, principal, assisted by Mrs. G.C. Austin, Jane Hearn and Jewell Michaels. The trustees were: M.M. Gass, J.D. Crisp, J. D. Davis, J.M. Kimsey and Lee Cloud.(Used by permission History of Dade County, Georgia, Retired Senior Volunteer Program, 1981)
