Hillsborough County Historic Landmark

— circa 1933 —

In 1866, freed slaves from East Hillsborough County founded the community of Bealsville-named for Alfred Beal, a member of one of the original families. Since the beginning of the community, education was important to its residents. Instruction first began in 1873.
In the 1930s residents made great sacrifices to ensure education for their community—raising $1,100 and donating over 10 acres of land for the school. The Hillsborough County School Board assisted in the construction of a three-room wood building, and in later years additional classrooms were added.
The new school, named for William Glover, existed as a Strawberry School until 1956. In 1971, due to desegration, the Glover School was converted to a sixth grade center, and white students were bused in from surrounding areas. The Glover School closed in 1980, and in 1981, the Hillsborough County School Board deeded the property to the newly formed non-profit organization, Bealsville, Inc. Today this landmark building still stands and continues to serve residents as a community center—provding vital services to the Bealsville community.
