1902-1925In 1902 children from nearby farms traveled by horse and buggy to the Silesia School, a one room school house. The school's contribution of education for this area continued until 1925. In 1959 the school and part of this land was sold to the Congress Heights Baptist Church. That congregation used the school as a mission chapel until 1965 when Fort Washington Baptist Church was built near the Silesia School. The Fort Washington Baptist Church commemorates the site with this plaque in honor and respect to Silesia School, Silesia Maryland.
