The original Beaver Dam School was built in 1909 on land acquired by the School Board of Beaver Dam District No. 3 of Hanover County. On 16 Dec 1919, fire destroyed the original two-story frame building that housed both elementary and high school grades. The school reopened in 1922 and a separate high school building was erected in 1932.

When Patrick Henry High School opened in 1959, the high school at Beaver Dam was discontinued, but it continued as an elementary school. In 1961, a new brick building replaced the 1922 frame building. The 1932 brick high school building was demolished to allow expansion of the elementary school.
