Schoolfield School
1913, Charles G. Pettit Jr. 31 Baltimore Ave.

Education was also part of the mill's plans. An eight-room frame school constructed in 1905–1907 was soon overcrowded and this brick building, partially financed by the company, took its place. The former school has a prominently projecting central tower, deep eaves, and long banks of quadruple windows (a later addition on the right has banks of quintuple windows).
