(Front text):This is the site of two schoolsthat served the black community of southern Beaufort County for most of the twentieth century. Bluffton Graded School, a small frame building constructed about1900, was followed in 1954 by an elementary and high school named for Michael C. Riley (1873~1966), longtime trustee of Beaufort County School District #2.

(Reverse text):From 1954 to 1970 the elementary school educated Bluffton's black students in grades 1~8 and the high school educated Bluffton's andHilton Head's black students in grades 9~12. After county schools were desegregated in 1970, it wasan elementary school for Bluffton's black and white students until 1991. A new Michael C. Riley ElementarySchool opened nearby that same year.
