Rock Creek School - Year is unknown

Rock Creek runs from Ambler Ridge (near Lynch Ridge) to the Pocatalico River; Rock Creek School was on Rock Creek approx. two miles from the headwaters. There were two Rock Creek Schools, the earlier one burned and the second built. Jeff Hively was a teacher in the first school. I believe Rock Creek School was located in Walton District. This photo is  of the second school.
