Sites on Lee Highway (Route 211)

When Lee Highway was widened through Amissville around 1975, it displaced 54 families and a two-room schoolhouse which was built around 1800. Amissville also had a three-year high school (a fourth year was offered at a nearby school). There is no known photographic record of any of this.
