There were over 100 one-room schools in Floyd County, but this one is the only one restored to its near-original state. Double Springs School was renovated 1992-1996 by Mason Whitenack and under the guidance of Ms. Vest who taught there years before. School desks, black boards, posters, maps, and other vestiges from the past complete this very special piece of history and create a museum. The windows were replaced in 1993. The chimney is there, but blocked. The outside was repainted in the last 7 years. Inside was painted 10 years ago. There is an opening to attic space above with rafter floor. The double-seater outhouse was moved to the site a few years ago from Stonewall Church. There is another outhouse "tool shed" behind the school. The school sets up on a hill overlooking pastoral views complete with cows. Springs run around the perimeter of the property. Surrounded by huge trees, some over 100-140 years old, complete this idyllic setting for this very special piece of Floyd history! 1.03 acres. Size: 22'x24' (528sf)
