"Lutherville Historical Colored School #24 Museum"

"1907. Baltimore County school system built a one room schoolhouse for Black children. Black students had previously been educated in a rented room in the Odd Fellows Hall since the early 1880's. The schoolhouse was expanded to two classrooms in 1919. There was a central cloakroom separating the two rooms. The school was closed in 1955 with the advent of integration. The museum houses an oral history collection of the community and serves as a center for Baltimore County African American genealogical information. Visitors step into the classroom complete with original books, blackboard, windows, walls and floor, and a pot-bellied stove."
