Schools and Teachers
This section is devoted to all of those whose special talent was that of teaching and the schools of Lauderdale County in which they taught. Lauderdale Countians have been concerned about education for their children from the earliest days to the present. Some schools were public, others were private, but all have added to the enrichment of Lauderdale County's citizens. They range in structure from the simple one-room log buildings of yesteryear to the modern facilities of the 21st century. Many of the early schools in Lauderdale County no longer exist; some have changed their name, and possibly their location; some exist only in photographs; others have disappeared forever, to be found only in the ads of the early newspapers. There are also those whose name is perpetuated today by a church or community even though the school exists only in the history of the area. If you have information about a school in Lauderdale County which you would like to share, please email .
