History

Stony Point Elementary was founded in 1908 and named for its rural surroundings. The original school consisted of four rooms and was heated by wood-burning stoves. Many of the students had to endure up to a four-mile walk until the first "bus," a horse-drawn carriage with a man named Obe Flint at the wheel. The current building was constructed in 1934 in the same location as the original school and until 1953 students from all grades attended. In 1953, Stony Point accepted only elementary- and middle-school-aged students, moving grade 7 students to Jack Jouett Middle School. Finally, in 1974, grade 6 was moved to Burley Middle School and Stony Point contained only elementary school students.[1]
