Schools of Southampton Township by Michele L. Miller

Southampton Township was formed in 1799 and is nestled in the Southern part of Bedford County with the Mason-Dixon Line forming its southern boundary. Tussey Mountain rises and divides this second largest township in the County.

Southampton was a hustling township in earlier days and was home to several schoolhouses. Eleven one-room schools and one two-room schoolhouse once stood in the township, some are still standing today.

Take a look back in time and explore some of the history of all twelve schools including Blues Gap, Browning, Collins, Flintstone Creek, Gordon, Mount Zion, Piney Lick, Pleasant Valley, Point Pleasant, Prosperity, Stony Lick and Walnut Grove.
