Established ca.1872, it remained in operation until 1957, when National laws governing education rights were changed; causing the need for the Edney school to end.
Odell Petteway, grandson of founder of school & church, is the current caretaker of this old school house.

Yes, the Edney school is in pretty good condition. A 1960 era hurricane dystroyed a small back room of the school.
Odell, at the time of the hurricane, took further steps to protect the school's condition. He placed newer siding and metal roof, over the original struction. Making a type of "second" layer over the school's structure.
In, 2009, the Petteway family purchased new windows. Now the school's interior can be kept safe and dry.
