Welcome to the Holley Graded School Historic Site!
The Holley Graded School, established as a school for freedpeople in 1868 and settled on its current property in 1869, has a long and vital history on Virginia's Northern Neck. Established as a National Historic Site and Virginia Historic Landmark in 1996, the Holley School continues as community center and museum site. We invite you to learn more on these pages about the school and its history as well as its current role in the community - and to become an active participant in its preservation!
