Notes
Survey number HABS WV-291
Significance: Although Grandview School functioned as an elementary school for a only relatively brief period, it played a significant role in the education of African-American children in Harpers Ferry in the final decades before segregation in public schools was declared unconstitutional in 1954. As a teaching laboratory for students from Storer College who were pursuing degrees in Elementary Education, Grandview School was, in effect, an extension of the Storer College campus. Several of Grandview's teachers and both its principals were also important members of the Storer College community, thus further linking the two schools.
