From the years 1840 to 1870, there were very few public schools in Carroll County. Most of them were rural which were taught by one or two teachers lasting one to four months in session when the teachers were not engaged in other activities.

The smaller children were taught at home by parents, older sisters and brothers, hired tutors or sent to a private school. Miss Julia Sanderson had a private school in her home east of the railroad in Vaiden. Later she taught in a building on the hill where B.W. Holmes' home now stands. She also taught in the Vaiden Public School.

Public Schools


The first public school in the area was thought to have been established in 1860. It was located east of the Vaiden Cemetery. Miss Annie Thompson was one of the first teachers of the Vaiden Public School. Professors McGoffin, Ford, Leighton, Adams, Carlton and Dr. T.W. Fullilove also taught.  However, unless this was the same school, there had apparently been one school, Richland Academy, in or around Shongalo since 1838.

In 1875, Dr. & Mrs. C.M. Vaiden built a public school, the Vaiden Male and Female Institute, to be used "solely and exclusively for educational purposes." This school was located where the Vaiden High School is located today. They gave to the black people the academy formerly used by the white children.

The deed for the Vaiden Male and Female Institute states: We designate and appoint as trustees for life, or as long as willing to serve, the following men: W.A. Wilson, S.C. Baines, Dr. A.J. Sanderson, S. Lichenstein, John J. Cain, W.M. Anderson, E.C. Ely, Dr. Joseph Applewhite, Benjamin Rosenthal, Joseph Hirsh, S.E. McConnico, Sr., B.J. Kopperl, R.R. Hawkins, D.D. Fullilove, Dr. Sam A. Hairston. Any seven shall constitute a quorum.

Dr. Vaiden chose Charles Henry Barksdale and his wife, Emily St. Albans Woodson Barksdale, as the first teachers of the institute.

The institute was accredited in 1910 with two in the graduating class: Eula Lee Cole and Joseph Herring.

In the early 1900s, this building was struck by lightning and partially destroyed. The exterior was reinforced and the interior reworked. Later an annex of three rooms was added. This building was used until 1941.

Old Landmark Removed

From: The Conservative, Friday, July 19, 1946, P.4.  The VAIDEN OUTLOOK section.

The old building of the Vaiden High School which has stood since 1876 or earlier, has been removed to make room for a gymnasium for the new school building which was completed in 1942.  With few exceptions, this old building has stood since the childhood days of everyone in this community.

Supt. F.D. Prewitt has been fortunate in obtaining new equipment for the new building—opera chairs for the auditorium, furniture and scenery for the stage, and a beautiful curtain.  The floor in the auditorium has been sanded and waxed and other improvements will be made before school opens in the fall.

The trustees, and indeed all the people of this community, are grateful to Mr. Prewitt for his untiring efforts on behalf of the school.

Mr. Prewitt has had sixteen years’ experience in school work and has been with the Vaiden School since 1942.  He has ever had the interest of every pupil in it at heart since he has been here.

[NOTE: The building that was removed was apparently the building that Dr. Vaiden caused to be built which, as a gift to Vaiden for educational purposes – including 4 acres of land – sat where the old Vaiden Gym of the 1960s once sat. That old gym was previously an aircraft hangar at Camp McCain.]



Mr. Rush Weir's will of 1938 deeded the land adjoining the Vaiden Public School (as it was now called) to the Vaiden Separate School District and also $25,000. With this money and $15,000 more, the present Vaiden High School Building was built in 1941 under the W.P.A. Program. The old Weir house on the property west of the school was purchased for a teacher's home. It was later used as the Principal's home, as well. The school also provided a home for the agriculture teacher.

Vaiden Separate School District was changed to a county school in 1943. Midway, Blackmonton, Brownline, Beatty and Hebron schools were consolidated with it. Blackhawk joined in 1956.

Until desegregation in the mid-1960s, Vaiden's Black High School Students attended the North Vaiden School, now known as the Percy Hathorn Public School.

Vaiden High School was extremely competitive in sports, with the ability to draw huge crowds, filling the football stadium or the gymnasium to capacity. Vaiden's old gym (second gym) was said to have been a barracks or hanger at Camp McCain. There was one gym earlier (the school's first gym), but no pictures have been found (yet). The third and newest gym was built in the 1970s and sits in the lot beside the Band Hall.

North Vaiden School/Percy Hathorn Public School

Description: Description: Main bldg Hathorn Elementary, Vaiden



Hathorn School Closure Issue – February, 2006 – CLICK HERE



The North Vaiden Public School/Percy Hathorn Public School was formerly known as Vaiden Jr. High School and then as Vaiden Negro High School. In the 1950s, it was located on the hill by the Vaiden Cemetery, but around 1957, the students were later moved to a new building and a new location on the east side of Highway 51 North between Vaiden and the Roadside Park. Mr. Percy Hathorn became the Principal in 1955. In the early to mid late 1960s, the old building located by the cemetery was moved to the west side of Highway 51 North, on the same location as the softball field and across from the new school, and was used for many years as the Vaiden Community Center, where the author of this website and several of his friends spent many Saturday nights making music in our rock & roll band, Coldfire. Mr. Hathorn possessed a quality of leadership, dignity, and concern that is rare in today's society. In around the 1956-57 school year, a certain 2 1/2 year-old, who shall remain nameless, lived several hundred yards from the old school when it was located by the Vaiden Cemetery. While his mother and father were busy in the garden, this little boy discovered that his favorite cat was missing. Convinced that he had seen the cat heading toward the school, the child left home in a vain attempt to rescue the poor feline. While Mr. Hathorn was teaching school, he heard someone crying. The little boy had crawled under the schoolhouse looking for the cat. Not finding it there, he burst into the classroom, crying for his "kitty cat." Mr. Hathorn, sympathetic for the plight of the youngster decided that, rather to keep the screaming child, it would be best to take him home. As he put me, uh, the child into the car, he was met with stiff opposition. A truce was arranged only after Mr. Hathorn let the child sit in his lap and steer the car on the way home. The little boy never forgot Mr. Hathorn's concern and patience, especially with a 2 1/2 year-old behind the wheel. Thank You, Mr. Hathorn.
