June 1967 – Jefferson School Was Demolished

The old school that was built in 1906 was demolished to make room for a new $465,000 consolidated elementary school. The facility now serves all first through fourth grades in the Follansbee area.   Many former students of the school took bricks as mementos of their of their years in the old school. A time box was found in the corner stone of the building containing the early history of Follansbee.
