School Records


On March 9, 2009, the Stafford County Register of Deeds turned custody of the rural school records over to the historical society. These records are available for research. Included are annual reports (most beginning in 1904) of the district clerk that, besides financial and other statistics of the school, record the name of every pupil, his birthday, residence and name of parent.

There are a few Term Registers maintained by teachers in the various individual schools. We also have ledgers and annual reports from the County Superintendent's office dating back to 1881 as well as a few Souvenir Booklets from some of the schools that list names of teachers and students.

High school annuals and school photos from county schools as far back as 1907.
