Oil Springs Schoolhouse aka: Spring Brook

The information & photos on this page were contributed by Mollie Meade, who writes: "I took a photo of the school and outhouse this fall (2020), while in Harpers Ferry.

The school was called Spring Brook and also known as Oil Springs. It originally was located on the Great River Road, north of Harpers Ferry near Mohn's Fish market. It was then gifted to the Harpers Ferry Heritage Society by the Martelle family and moved to Harpers Ferry."

Mollie's grandfather, Philip Gavin, attended this school.
