Marklesburg School and Normal School


 The Marklesburg School and Normal School served as a classroom for local children as well as an educational facility to train young people to become teachers.  In a rural area, it was often difficult for young adults to attend high school and especially college.  The Normal School provided a training opportunity for those interested in pursuing an education.


The school building is located on Rt. 26 in Marklesburg.  It now serves as the James Creek Post Office on one side and as a meeting space for the Marklesburg Borough Council on the other side.
