  • Portlock Public School (C. C. Walton School) (Jason R. Waicunas)

A modest example of Colonial Revival public schools built in Virginia during the early twentieth century, the single-story, two-classroom building gains distinction from its pedimented portico, supported by paired Tuscan columns. It now serves as a local museum and visitor center.
