Wall Hill School

Located  on the Marshall Tate County lines

From WPA Records

Wall Hill School was located in the extreme eastern part of Tate County on the Marshall/Tate County lines and was a line school in order to accommodate the children who were living near the line in the two counties.

The people who were the most interested in the Wall Hill School were the Easons, Bowers, Harpers, and a few other families who were not permanently located there. These Families and others had children who attended school there.

Some of the Bowens were teachers there for many years.

The building was a small one room structure made of logs with a stick and dirt chimney.

For many years it has been extinct. Some of the children went to school in Marshall County and some attended other schools in Tate County which were nearest to them.
