Louisa Training School, the county's first high
school for African American students, was built
three miles northwest in 1926 with aid from the
Rosenwald Fund. In 1953, Archie Gibbs Richardson
High School replaced it here as part of an effort
to provide "separate but equal" facilities for
Afrícan Americans. The school was named for the
only black official then employed by Virginia's
Education Department. Also on this site stood
Zelda Carter Morton Elementary School, built
in 1960 and named for the county's Jeanes Fund
supervisor of education for African Americans
from 1926 to 1945. Louisa County schools were
desegregated in 1969.
