Lafayette county training school top 5 facts


The Lafayette County Training School is a historic school building at 1046 Berry Street, on the former campus of Ellis High School in Stamps, Arkansas. It is a single-story brick building with gable roof, built in 1929 with assistance from the Rosenwald Fund. It is laid out in the shape of an H, and houses six classrooms in the side wings, with an office, library, and auditorium in the center. It is the only surviving Rosenwald School in Lafayette County. It served the area's African-American student population until 1969, when the county schools were integrated. It thereafter served as an integrated middle school until 1975, and for a time as a daycare center afterward.

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.
