Established in the mid 19th century on land owned by Capt. James Spencer, who served in the Union Army during the Civil War, Freetown illustrates the principles of self-sufficiency and cooperation typical of African American communities. The first public school opened in 1914 in the lodge building of the Good Templars. A two-room school was completed in 1925 with support from the Julius Rosenwald Fund and with land and labor contributed by the community. Through the efforts of the Freetown Community Association, a new school was built in 1958.
