This school built shortly after 1906 served the old Flexatile mining settlement in northeast Bartow County which dates back to 1920.  Prior to 1920, this same school was known as Slate for the Georgia Green Slate Company which established the original mining operation there around 1906. The Funkhouser Company bought the mines in 1927. The school consolidated with Pine Log and was later sold to Funkhouser on February 4, 1930 for $550.
