In 1878 Montgomery County erected two schools on Franklin Street. One was the "colored elementary school," which opened a year later and taught grades one through eleven until 1922. In that year the county constructed Burt High School on adjacent property. The elementary school, named for educator Bailey Cobb in 1951, was razed in 1977. Three time Olympic gold medalist Wilma Rudolph attended this school, taught there in the 1960's, and later served as track coach at Burt High School.
