A rural African-American school stood here by 1874. In 1927 a two-room elementary school serving Cedar Green and Smokey Row communities was built. The Augusta County Training School (Cedar Green School), the county's first black consolidated school, opened here in 1938. Community members assisted to construct this frame structure, featuring a central auditorium, a common design provided by the Virginia Department of Education. Between 250 and 320 students, grades one through nine, attended class here from across the county. Augusta County school integration in 1966 closed the school and the American Legion purchased the building.
