At 2pm on March 16 we'll gather at the Pigg Schoolhouse in Santa Fe.
On October 12, 1857, Robert Whitaker sold to Daniel J. Pigg a tract of land on the Duck River. In this deed it allowed for a plot of land to be given to the Maury County School Commissers. This was the beginning of Pigg Schoolhouse, 1884.
The school was in operation until the 1920s. Charlie Skillington purchased it, and it was used as a tenant house and a grainery. It was given to Charlie Pigg by John Robert Skillington in 2003, and was moved from its location on Pigg Schoolhouse Road to Mingo Branch Road where it was restored and waiting our visit on March 16.
