Knoles School

This school and church was first started as a Pleasant Ridge Church, School and Cemetery.  The Cemetery was started pre 1889 and the church and school were started in 1895.  The building was a school during the week, a Seventh Day Adventist Church on Saturday (the Sabbath) and on Sunday it was used by Riverdale Sunday School, a methodist group.

Activities continued in the building until 1947 when it closed.  The building was on school land that was sold to the Wilson's in 1952.  Soon after, the building was sold to a black man and used as his home.  He moved the building "somewhere up the road".  I have not found the building or the man.  If you have information on this, please contact me.
