Stafford Training School, later known as H. H. Poole School, was constructed in 1939 by
the Public Works Administration after African American parents raised money to buy the
land. During the segregation era, this was the only school in Stafford County offering
black students an education beyond seventh grade. After an earlier attempt failed, two
young students from this school, Doretha and Cynthia Montague, successfully entered the
all-white Stafford Elementary School on 5 Sept. 1961, seven years after the Supreme
Court Brown v. Board of Education decision ruled school segregation unconstitutional.
Thereafter school systems in the Fredericksburg region desegregated.
