      Leaksville-Spray Institute, also known as Leaksville-Spray Academy and Leaksville-Spray Intermediate School, was a historic school complex located at Eden, Rockingham County, North Carolina. The complex consisted of the Administration Building, the Girls Home, both finished by 1905, and the classroom and auditorium building constructed in 1930. They were large two-story, Colonial Revival style brick buildings, with the Girls Home having some Queen Anne style design elements. The classroom and auditorium building connected the two other buildings. It has been demolished. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.

      Can Anyone Help Identify the School?

      Caswell County's Annie Dora Zimmerman (1889-1972) taught school. This photograph purports to include her first class. Based upon the students around her, it looks like a lower grade (or grades).

      She is fourth from the left in the second row from the bottom. Other teachers are on the back (top) row and at the right end of the second row (male teacher holding hat). Click image to see a larger version.

      The school has not been identified. While realizing this is a long shot, can anyone help identify the school?

      She is a daughter of George W. Zimmerman (1855-1939) and Mary Jane Gillespie (1856-1926). The family lived in Dan River Township. In 1913, she married Robert Weldon Davis (1886-1971). They both were from Caswell County but were married in Greensboro, Guilford County, North Carolina. This may suggest she was teaching there in 1913.

      Annie Dora Zimmerman graduated from Leaksville-Spray Institute in Rockingham County, North Carolina.

      No more is known.
