The town of Farmville was incorporated in 1872. For the next 100 years, its growth and prosperity were directly tied to the cultivation, processing and distribution of Brightleaf tobacco. Today, Farmville is trying to hold on to the benefits of small-town life while expanding its commercial and industrial opportunities.

  • [Thanks to Jessie Carraway Heizer, Class of ’52, for providing the school colors.]
  • I couldn’t find any record of when Farmville High School opened or closed.
    – I found one biography of a fellow who graduated from “the Farmville high school” in the 1890’s. Meanwhile, his sisters graduated from “the Normal School”, also in Farmville.
    – An 1898 “Biennial Report of the Superintendent of Public Instruction” shows the schools in Farmville as the “Farmville Male and Female Academy”.
    – Another biography says the subject was a teacher in Farmville from 1880-1890, but doesn’t say what school.
    – The 1910 “North Carolina School Bulletin” records that Farmville High School had 24 students and two teachers.
    – Ayden-Grifton High School was built in 1971. Farmville Central High School and North Pitt High School opened about the same time.

    In 1957, Farmville didn’t win the Class A state football championship, but they had an interesting trip before falling. The game against Beaufort ended in a 0-0 tie. In those days, there was no overtime. The team with the most offensive yards (Farmville) was declared the winner. The following week, Farmville scored late in the game to tie the score at 6. Again, they were awarded the victory by outgaining Red Springs. Here’s a recap of the second game from the Red Springs’ home newspaper, the Robesonian.

    The town of Erwin was originally called Duke, after Washington Duke, who built the first cotton mill in the area. The town was renamed Erwin in 1926 and was incorporated in 1967. Erwin was known as “The Denim Capital of the World.” A 1993 newspaper report stated that Erwin denim plants produced over a million yards of denim each week! To celebrate their heritage, Erwin holds “Denim Days” the first weekend of each October.

    Back when the town of Erwin was named Duke, the public school only ran through ninth grade. Tenth and eleventh grades were added in 1924 and the first (and only) graduation from Duke High School occurred in 1925. The following year, the town of Duke was renamed Erwin and the high school followed suit, being renamed Erwin High School. The school was originally located on the second floor of a downtown building before moving to its permanent home on 10th Street. Erwin High School closed in 1985 when it consolidated with Coats High School and Dunn High School to form Triton High School.

    Except for the handful of tidbits below, I couldn’t find out much about Eastman High School. A ClassicSchools.com blog reader informed me that Eastman High School was consolidated into Southeast Halifax High School and Northwest High School in 1982.

    The Eastman High School building is now the home of Eastman Middle School.

    At the March 6, 1950 meeting of the Halifax County Board of Education, the chairman and superintendent reported that the State Review Panel had approved the revised plan for school building projects that included…completion of an auditorium, gymnasium and six classrooms for the Eastman School…for an estimated cost of $88,000.

    The office building and gym were built in 1951.
    The 800 building was built in 1955.
    The 600 & 700 buildings were built in 1959.
    The cafeteria was built in 1968.
    The shop was built in the 1970’s.
    Reunion Apparel for Eastman High School

    Eastman High School Athletics:
    Without a football field, Eastman played all its games on the road.
    1974 – Eastman High School led the state in several categories:
    – Most Points Allowed, Season (497, 55.2 points-per-game)
    – Most Points Allowed, Single Game (lost 98-0 to Gaston)
    – Most Times Shut Out (8 times out of 9 games played)
    1979 – Gumberry High School broke its 59-game losing streak by defeating Eastman High School, 22-0.

    ——————————————————————————————————–

    Update 3/6/2010:
    In the original post about Eastman High School, I made this statement:
    Also, at a football reunion for another school, one old-timer distinctly remembered playing a game against the “Eastman Kodaks”. Was the nickname really Kodaks at one time or did his memory fail?
    Astute reader B.Goins offered this explanation:
    Eastman High School’s mascot indeed used to be The Kodak and there is a Kodak camera etched on my class ring (1977). My understanding is that George Eastman (inventor of the Kodak camera) granted them the land to build the school on, thus the name. The mascot was later changed to the Kodiak bear (there was a vote on the name change by the student body but nobody I knew voted for the change). We liked the uniqueness of the Kodak camera as our mascot. Their reason was that our teams were teased when playing other schools, i.e, “here come those cameras, come take our picture”. I am sure that the powers that be decided to change the name of their own volition and student votes on the issue was a meaningless exercise. Eastman was a wonderful school with good teachers attended mostly by African-Americans and Haliwa Indians.

    There are numerous references to Elm City School as far back as the mid 1800s. A $75,000 bond issue was passed by voters in 1921 and a new graded school building was opened in 1922. That frame building apparently burned in 1940 and was replaced by the brick building most alumni remember. In 1970, it became Elm City High School. In 1978, ECHS consolidated with Ralph L. Fike High School in Wilson, NC and the old ECHS building became Elm City Middle School.

    1940 news article - This was probably the 1922 frame building.

    From Town of Hildebran website:
    The Town Hall began its life as a schoolhouse. The first brick schoolhouse was built in Hildebran in 1917. It remains a part of the present building, but has had several additions during the years. No electricity was available until the early 1920’s. The auditorium was lighted for night programs by several gas lanterns.
    – The first addition to the school was in about 1923, an auditorium with additional classrooms on the second floor. The original auditorium was converted to classrooms.
    – The first commencement was held in 1919. By 1925 the graduating class had increased to fourteen members.
    – A wooden structure was built in the 40’s to be used as a lunchroom. It later became the schools first gymnasium.
    – In 1957 more land was purchased and a new primary (“main”) building was constructed (building on right). In 1959, a new auditorium was added with a bandroom. A new gymnasium was added in 1965.

    Hildebran High School, George Hildebran High School and Valdese High School consolidated in 1974 to form East Burke High School.

    ——————————————————————
    As near as I can figure out, here’s the sequence of consolidations since 1971. (If I’m wrong, somebody please correct me.)

      1971 – Bladen Central High School consolidated with Elizabethtown High School in 1971 and for that one year they were known as the Elizabethtown Cougars.

      1972 – In 1972, Elizabethtown High School, White Oak High School and East Arcadia High School were consolidated and became the East Bladen Cougars. East Bladen opened in a new building and the old Elizabethtown High School became East Bladen Middle School.

      1992 – In 1992, Clarkton High School was closed. Most of the students transferred to Bladenboro High School, a few moved to East Bladen.

      2001 – In 2001, Bladen County built two new high school buildings, with East Bladen moving into one of them. Bladenboro High School and Tar Heel High School were closed. Some of the students were transferred to East Bladen High School, but the majority went to the newly constructed West Bladen High School. West Bladen were the Knights and East Bladen changed their mascot to the Eagles. (Due to construction delays, the West Bladen building wasn’t completed until 2002. West Bladen students attended classes in their old high schools.) The old East Bladen High School building became Elizabethtown Middle School and the old Elizabethtown High School building was demolished to make way for the new Elizabethtown Municipal Building. The old Elizabethtown High School gym still stands behind the Municipal building.

    Street view of downtown Aurelian Springs.

    Aurelian Springs is an unincorporated community in Halifax County, North Carolina, United States. It is part of the Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina Micropolitan Statistical Area.

    Aurelian Springs is located at 36.36417 N. Latitude and -77.80722 W. Longitude.

    Its elevation is 339 ft.

    (How Aurelian Springs, North Carolina got its name)
    The seven springs located here reportedly carried aurelian (or golden) waters which had medicinal qualities. It was a popular recreation area of the late nineteenth century.

    ———————————————-

    Aurelian Springs High School

    mascot: Hornets
    Colors: Purple & Old Gold

    One source says the mascot was Yellow Jackets, another says it was Hornets. I voted for Yellow Jackets, thinking the second source was confused by the fact that Hornets is the mascot of Aurelian Springs Elementary School. Astute visitor Taylor Hawkins set me straight with this information:
    The colors for Aurelian Springs High School were actually “Purple and Old Gold”. My father graduated from there and I’ve seen his yearbooks. That’s how they referred to their colors, “Purple and Old Gold”. The mascot was the Hornet. … The school was elementary and high school … Eventually they closed the high school and the school continued as an elementary school. Of course now they have torn down the old building and built a new facility. The elementary kept the Hornet mascot when the high school closed.”

    “Bailey School” was born in 1913.
    Bailey High School graduated its first class in 1918.
    Bailey High School graduated its last class in 1968, then merged into the new Southern Nash High School.
    A 1956 newspaper article refers to the team as the Green Hornets.

    ———————————————————–
    Women’s Basketball

    Bailey High School was a powerhouse in women’s basketball. When the school was closed in 1968, they were on a 48-game winning streak that stretched back to 1966.

    They currently hold an interesting North Carolina state record. In 1959, Bailey played Red Oak High School. Red Oak knew they had no chance to beat Bailey, so they held the ball the entire game, keeping it out of the hands of Bailey’s shooters. The scheme almost worked, as Red Oak only lost by one point. The final score was Red Oak 3, Bailey 4, a state record for the lowest scoring game in history.

    Their real claim to fame, however, is the other North Carolina state record they still hold. Between 1958 and 1962, the Bailey High School women’s basketball team won 107 straight games!

    Those teams have sent two people to the North Carolina High School Athletics Association Hall of Fame.
    – Coach Billy Widgeon was a standout high school athlete, leading his Newport High School team to an NC State Championship. In college, he was inducted into the Atlantic Christian (now Barton) College Hall of Fame. He taught and coached at Bailey from 1957-1964, where he coached three sports. From 1964 to 1991, he was the head basketball and golf coach at West Carteret, where he became a charter member of the West Carteret Hall of Fame. In 2009, he was inducted into the NCHSAA Hall of Fame.
    – In 1960, Andrea Cozart scored 64 points in a game against Knightdale. After graduating from East Carolina, she became a coach at High Point Central High School, coaching four sports. Her women’s basketball teams compiled a 67-3 record, including a state runner-up finish in 1985. Her men’s and women’s swimming teams each compiled 40-meet winning streaks and were perennial contenders for the state championship. She was inducted into the NCHSAA Hall of Fame in 2003.

    Richmond County

    The town of Ellerbe went through several name changes, from Scottish Fairgrounds, to Hurricane, to Fairgrounds. It was incorporated as Ellerbe in 1911 when the railroad came to town. W. T. Ellerbe had built a resort town around natural springs which were said to have healing powers.

    Here are some great Ellerbe, NC photos from flickr user matt.wagers.

    This website has a good History of Ellerbe, NC. It’s the Ellerbe, NC website, so look around. It contains a lot of interesting stuff about Ellerbe.

    Dates in Ellerbe High School history:
    – 1925 – Norman consolidated into Ellerbe
    – 1928 – Gibson Mill consolidated into Ellerbe
    – 1967 – (According to the History of Ellerbe, NC cited above) Hamlet City Schools, Rockingham City Schools, and Richmond County Schools (including Ellerbe) were consolidated.
    – 1972 – Ellerbe High School was closed. The students moved into the new Richmond Senior High School. The Ellerbe High School building became Ellerbe Junior High School.

    Richmond Senior High School was formed by merging Ellerbe, Hamlet, Rockingham, and Rohanen High Schools.

    Miscellaneous notes about Ellerbe High School

    An old newspaper article about Ruth Merritt says “In the 1930’s she taught at Ellerbe High School, then famed as a model progressive school under Principal Richard F. Little.”

    Here’s a great web page about the first year of the Richmond Marching Raider Band.

    We found a 1951 article about Ellerbe High School playing in a 6-man football league. A later mention says they played as an 8-man team.

    The 1918 Annual School Report to the North Carolina State Inspector of Public High Schools contains this entry:
    Richmond County
    Principal O. G. Reynolds, Ellerbe High School:
    We have voted since last year $12,000 worth of bonds for the purpose of erecting a brick schoolhouse, which we hope to have built this year.

    Elizabeth City High School — Elizabeth City, North Carolina

    Reunion Apparel for Elizabeth City High School Elizabeth City High School
    Pasquotank County, NC

    School Colors: Black and Gold
    Mascot: Yellow Jackets

    Replaced by Northeastern High School in 1969. (Also replaced P.W. Moore High School and Central High School.)

    Here’s a good History of Elizabeth City schools.

    From Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools:
    ELIZABETH CITY HIGH SCHOOL
    Elizabeth City, public, white. First building erected in 1908 on site of old Atlantic Collegiate Institute on North Road Street. It was replaced in 1923-1924 by a new High School, now the EC Middle School across the street. The old building remained until it was replaced by S.L. Sheep Junior High School in 1940.

    From the Pasquotank County page at www.ncgenweb.us:
    – “The first known school for Blacks [in North Carolina] was a red schoolhouse located near the corporate limits of Elizabeth City in 1879.. . . The school was called Colored Normal School…
    – “In 1924 Elizabeth City High School was built. In this same year, P.W. Moore was built to be the high school for black students from both the city and the county.
    – “Elizabeth City and Pasquotank County operated as two separate school systems until 1967 when the two units were merged into the present system.

    The 1916 Elizabeth High School yearbook, The Tatler, includes a photo of Ned, the collie dog mascot.

    The 1915 State Annual Report lists the 1915 graduates as: Helen Bell, Maude Dewey, Nannie Fearing, Mary Harris, Jessie Harris, Elizabeth Hinton, Eula Poppendick, Seth Spivey, Euthel Raper, Henry White, Alma Winslow and William Woodey, Jr.

    The 1916 State Annual Report lists the 1916 graduates as: Ottie Boettcher, Mildred Commander, Earle Chesson, Ruth Cooke, Roger Hayman, Pearl Hughes, Aubrey McCabe, Henry LeRoy, Alma Midgette, Ida Owens, Bessie Richardson, Mary Ward, Esther Woodley and Mattie White.

    1957 – State AA Football Champions

    In the 1950’s, the band went to Richmond to play in the Tobacco Bowl parade. I’m guessing there is no more Tobacco Bowl.

    In 1989, a wrestling club was formed at Edneyville High School as “Edneyville Freestyle Club” with one wrestler, James Short, then a high school freshman, and one coach, Norman Osteen. That club has grown into one of the most successful and the longest running wrestling club in the state of North Carolina. Having worked with over 3400 wrestlers, Strong & Courageous Wrestling Club has produced to date 102 National Champions and 490 All Americans from kids to veterans and all ages in between.

    Aberdeen High School could trace its roots back to a one-room log school that held its first classes in 1876. The school was “officially” organized in June, 1920. In the fall of 1969 AHS students transferred to the new Pinecrest High School.

    There are several articles about Aberdeen High School in the archives of ThePilot.com, “your online news site for Pinehurst, Southern Pines and the rest of North Carolina’s Sandhills”.

    Basketball:

    Both Aberdeen High School basketball teams were Moore County Champions of the 1947-1948 season, with the girl’s team going undefeated (19-0).

    The girls team won 7 consecutive County Championships from 1946-1953. Also in 1953, the girls were Class A State Champions.

    Bob Lee, who was Aberdeen’s football, baseball, softball and women’s basketball coach from 1950-1959, organized the first women’s basketball state championship, even before the sport was recognized by the NCHSAA. He was inducted into the NCHSAA Hall of Fame in 2003.

    Football:

    Aberdeen High School made four appearances in North Carolina championship games:
    – 1956 State Champion (6-man teams)
    – 1957 State Runner-up (6-man teams)
    – 1963 State Runner-up, Region 2
    – 1964 State Champion, Region 2

    Edenton, North Carolina seems to consider itself a small town. With a population of around 13,000, maybe they try to maintain the small town feel. Edenton is the largest town in Chowan County, which is the smallest county in North Carolina (147 square miles according to the Chowan County Sheriff’s Office).

    Here’s some Chowan County photos from the book Edenton and Chowan County, North Carolina.

    Chowan High School is listed as being in Edenton, but is physically closer to the little town of Tyner. A reader of this blog tells us the colors of the Chowan Bulldogs were Maroon and White. Another says they were Maroon and Gold. So, I’ve changed the alumni apparel to Maroon, Gold & White.

    I couldn’t find much information at all about Chowan High School (but check out the excellent comments from alumni at the end of this post.)

    “Chowan” refers to the Chowan Indian tribe that lived in the area at one time. The area is rich in history. The thick growth and swamps around the Chowan River was used at different times to “swallow up” people who didn’t want to be found.

    Here’s a Google Street View which may be Chowan Middle School. What little I could find about Chowan High School indicates that, over the life of the school, there was more than one school building. I have no idea where the final Chowan High School building was or whether it still exists.

    ———– Sports ————————————————————–

    The Chowan High School baseball team made it to the Class 1A playoffs in 1980.

    Anne Hollowell scored 70 points in a basketball game against Conway in 1955.

    Here’s a few blurbs I found in old newspapers or books that mention Chowan High School.

    NC Dept. of Public Instruction, 1915 Annual Report
    Principal, Miss Mary Agnes Weaver, Chowan High School:
    I made no report on the building. This school year we have had a comfortable building with passable equipment. For the next school year, the new building (brick) will be ready for occupancy.

    In the 1936 “North Carolina Emergency Relief Administration” report, $1,700 was allocated for “Construction school building, Chowan High School.”

    (Wilmington) Star-News, May 20, 1974
    WHITEVILLE — Terry Grier of Whiteville Senior High School’s Wolfpack has been named the Three Rivers Conference’s “Co-Coach Of The Year” in baseball. Grier is in his first year at Whiteville Senior High, coming from Chowan High in Edenton where he was “Coach of the Year” in the East Tidewater 2-A Conference (now 3-A).

    The Windsor Daily Star, Dec. 19, 1935
    BASHFUL
    SMALL’S CROSS ROADS, N. C.. Dec. 19
    Eleazer Woodard, athletic coach at Chowan High School, played the leading part in “Bashful Mr. Bobbs” so well he almost stopped the show.
    Bashful both on and off stage, Woodard forgot his lines when the girls in the play started to “cuddle up” as their parts specified.
    “Brace up, Eleazer, nobody is going to bite you,” the school principal whispered from the wings.
    Eleazer braced–and the show went on.

    We’re not sure when Carthage High School was founded.
    – We do know that the late N.C. State Senator Curtis Marley Muse graduated from Carthage High School in 1895. Mississippi State Senator Hugh McQueen Street attended Carthage High School in 1847 & 1848, but we’re not sure which Carthage. He grew up in Moore County, NC, but then moved to Mississippi. There is also a Carthage High School in Carthage, Mississippi.

    Carthage High School closed after the 1963-64 school year when Farm Life High School, Carthage High School, Vass High School and Cameron High School were consolidated into the new Union Pines High School.
