Indian Schools in Virginia #genealogy

The Bear Mountain Indian School

Bear Mountain Indian SchoolBear Mountain Indian Mission School was used by the Monacan tribe since about 1868 when a parcel of land was donated as a meeting place for the Indians. For a long while, churches and schools were not provided for Indians and a wooden arbor served as the meeting place. However, the local ministers began providing services under the arbor and it was not long afterwards that a log building was constructed large enough for about 350 people. Later on, the building became the Indian Mission School at the foot of Bear Mountain. The school building was built in 1868, and is a single-story, one-room, horizontal log building. In 1908, a frame addition was built and during the 1930's it was a plain frame building sheathed in weatherboard.
