1884-1909One of the oldest surviving one-room schoolhouses in Prince George's County, Thrift School was built in 1884. It replaced an earlier school from 1869 located on the same site. The School Commissioners, having acquired the one-acre tract from the Bryan Family 15 years earlier, contracted J.B. Townshend to rebuild the school for $495. The school's first two modern innovations were acquired in 1905—a water closet and a typewriter.
