Mahan grade school was built at Main and State streets in 1914. The school served the lower-end of Follansbee from Penn street to the lower city limits, and children from the Cross Creek vicinity. In 1962, the school suffered significant damage to the rear of the building from fire. During the renovation of the school, children attended classes in various locations where temporary space was leased by the city.
In 1969 the new enlarged Jefferson School was constructed and Mahan students began attending Jefferson. The Mahan building was no longer in use.
