The Superior-Maitland School is located a few miles east of Welch on US 52 just before you reach the limits of the town of Kimball.
This school is not abandoned at all. It lies on property still owned by the McDowell County School Board. The county bus garage is on adjacent property to this building and the building is used as a community gym with various exercise equipment available to use.
I cant find any information on this school online. Judging by the looks of the building alone I would guess that the school was built in the late 1920s or 1930s.
I did find people posting on some message boards that apparently attended school here as recently as the late 1980s. Im assuming that is probably about when this school was closed.
