History

The George Washington Carver School

In the 1920s, the black school children just called it "The School."

 

The small wooden building stood at the corner of N.E. 3rd Ave. and NW 5th St. - the first black school in Crystal River. Later, the school would have several different names before being named George Washington Carver Junior High School.

 

Some believe Mayme Mobley was the School's first principal, but most former students remember Emanuel Stewart, a 19-year-old.

 

The 25 children in each room sat two to a desk. More than one grade shared a classroom.
