The Ahoskie School, located in Ahoskie, North Carolina, has a rich history that dates back to when it was built back in the year 1929. All of this was made by an American architect known for creating plenty of important and historic buildings in the United States of America Leslie N. Boney Sr. This architect was around from 1880 to the year 1964 and back in 1929, they built the Ahsokie School.

The school can be found at the address 105 North Academy Street in Ahsokie, North Carolina. The historic town of Ahsokie is a town that can be found in the town of Hertford County, North Carolina and it has plenty more history than just this school, but this school is definitely important. Plus, this school, as partially pictured above, is still standing today.

This school was added to the United States National Register of Historic Places in September 2005, when it was given the reference number 05000960 and designated as a historic school important to the history of both the state of North Carolina and the country of the United States of America as a whole. The school was the site of the first 4-H club in North Carolina and the main building was created in the Classical Revival style of architecture, making it a very important part of the architectural history of the United States.
