In a 1904 issue of the St. Mary's Beacon, Mr. Charles J. Russell (son of Charles Lewis Russell) of Morganza described a St. Mary's County School of the pre-Civil War era: The old school house of Maryland Springs, in Leonardtown district, the first public school house built in that part of the county, was built after 1842. It was a frame house, weatherboarded with undressed pine and sealed inside with half-inch plank. There were two doors, one on each side, one window on each side, and two windows on the west end. The writing desk was sloping plank across the west end. The teacher's chair was an old fashioned common stool chair and set in the north-east corner of the house. The seats for the girls were two plank benches without backs. The boys' benches were made of oak logs with one side hewed square, the bark left on the other side, two auger holes bored in each end and sticks driven in for logs. An old fashioned wood stove set up in the middle of the room completed the furniture.

The school district was quite large, then running with the St. Joseph's road to St. Clement's Bay, thence to Stone's Wharf, thence across country to the plank bridge, thence with the head-waters of Britton's Bay to the road leading from the old St. Aloysius Church through the lands of Dr. Edelen and with the said road to St. Joseph's Church. The school had five trustees: Messrs. James Howard, Edward R. Bradburn, Charles L. Russell, John L. Raley, and James Dillahay. (R-1)
