Ebenezer School

Located about three and one half miles northwest of Senatobia

From WPA Records

The Ebenezer School was first built about three and one half miles northwest of Senatobia in 1884. It was organized by the parents of the community as a private school. Miss. Antionette Wilson was the first teacher. Some of the first pupils were: Fannie Veasey, Laura Kahil, Lanice Haines, Appie Lou Haines, Jennie Wendel, Bennie Carrington, Florence Carrington, Sam Hunter and Bill Hunter.

The building was a typical one at that time, a one room structure with wooden shutters.

Mrs. Youngblood taught the next school which was located about one mile north of the old school building. Years later it was consolidated with the Senatobia School.
