Drayden African American Schoolhouse Open House

Drayden African American Schoolhouse

Visit one of the nation's best-preserved one-room African American schoolhouses on select days each month. Check out the renovated schoolhouse and learn about its rich history and importance in St. Mary's County. Staff will be available at the school during this time to answer any questions and provide information.

The schoolhouse has been closed for several years, but with the completion of the renovations of the building in the spring of 2018, the public is now able to access this significant historic site on the 1st Saturday of each month and during periodic special event weekends. The St. Mary's County Museum Division also offers special programs for school, bus and other tour groups who would like to visit the site. Visitors who would like to see the schoolhouse times outside open house hours can contact Piney Point Lighthouse Museum and Historic Park to arrange a visit.
