Dug Hill Community

If you have any information or photos you could add about this community, please let me know

Dug Hill School was first located next door to Dugs hill Church.  It was a one room school.  Then the new school was later built which had two rooms.  The last teachers at this school was Mrs. Mattie Washington of the Dugs Hill Community and Mrs. Katie Louise Otis of Livingston.  This was a Black School.  If someone have some precise dates of this school closing and how it was started - It would be appreciated.
