Old Sampson School to be demolished

The Old Sampson Schoolhouse on the Cumberland Plateau is in the process of being demolished, property owner Arlin Hale reported.

Hale said the historic structure has been in place for years but is falling into disrepair. He noted he will be salvaging what lumber he can out of the old schoolhouse. The structure is located at the corner of Watson Loop, Old Spencer Road, and Hale Loop Road.

“Since it’s an historic structure, I wanted to let people know why it is being torn down,” he said.
