Wayne Reed adds, via Facebook: My mother used to walk by this school on her way to school in Pitts This was a black school in the 20’s and 30’s. Mother is 98 and has a great memory. According to Shawn Rhodes, it was most recently used as Snow Hill Church (early 1980s – 2003).

    Brian, Do you know Delano Braziel? I bet he would know. Tell me what road/where it is in relation to downtown and I’ll ask him?

      This building was used as a church fairly recently. It was Snow Hill Church from at least the early 1980s until about 2003. Before that, I have no knowledge of its use.
