Mechanicsville School at Humphreys Station. This school was the most crudely built of all the mountain schools, as can be seen in these pictures of it. Some of the old boards have been replaced with new ones, giving the building a zebra-like appearance. This picture is looking north, the trees in the background marking the bed of Big Dry Creek. The day is some kind of celebration, possibly graduation, which explains the several cars.
