In 1886, Elizabeth Jane Holladay established the first Glen Allen School when she began teaching children in her home. In 1899, the school was moved to a one-room building on Mountain Road. It was relocated to Old Washington Highway in 1911. Constructed at a cost of $10,000, it had no central heating or indoor plumbing. Between 1914 and 1925, three wings were added. In the 1930's an auditorium/gymnasium and home economics cottage were constructed. The school ended operation at this site in 1978. In 1999, it reopened as The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen.
