This two-teacher school was built for the 1924-5 school year. It was constructed on two acres of land and cost $4,255. Of this total, $300 came from the black community, $3,255 from public funds (provided by the Durham County school board), and $700 came from the Rosenwald Fund. It was insured for $3,700. The Lillian School was located in Carr/Oak Grove Township and was completed during the tenure of Jeanes supervisor Carrie Jordan.
The black community began pursuing the development of this school in 1921, making pledges at a school board meeting that year to contribute part of the cost of the school's construction in cash, labor, and materials.
