Halltown Colored Free School

The Halltown Colored Free School in Halltown, West Virginia was built in 1870 to educate children from the African-American community in Halltown. The school was racially segregated from local schools for whites, in accordance with the laws of the time. It functioned in that capacity until 1929, when it was converted to a residence.

The school is next to the Halltown Union Colored Sunday School, and is owned by the same community organization.
