Blackwater High School — Lee County, Virginia

Blackwater

Blackwater High School is located near the intersection of Virginia State Route 70 which travels north from Jonesville South over into the Kyles Ford area of Hancock County, Tennessee and State Route 604 which is also known as the Dr. Andrew Jackson Osborne Highway.

The school was built in 1925 and has many of the same archecture ideas and themes as the school that was built in that era at Keokee on the other end of Lee County.

I cant find a whole lot of information about this school, other than a website that is dedicated to the history of the community of Blackwater.  I combed through some of the guestbook entries and I am led to believe that this school was a combined school meaning it served grades K-12.

The school closed at the end of the 1970-71 school year but is still used every year for a gathering of alumni for the annual Blackwater Reunion.
