About this Event

We have been raising funds to renovate the school and our next major fundraising event is our 1st Annual Crab Feast located at the Charles County Fairgrounds on August 10th from 4p-8pm. We will have all eat crabs, food, beverages, free giveaways, food vendor free samples, a DJ, and Taylor Thomas (radio/TV personality) will serve as our Mistress of Ceremonies. The Historic McConchie One-Room School is operated by the volunteer, non-profit Charles County Fair Board of Directors and McConchie School Committee oversee.

Originally located at Blossom Point Road and Route 6, the school opened in 1912 to serve African-American children and closed in 1952, when Charles County consolidated all of its schools. A private citizen bought the school and it became a family rental property. It was ready for demolition in 1992, when several Fair Board members moved it to the Charles County Fairgrounds. Mr. Mitchell Digges (now deceased) and Mr. George Dyson (living), spearheaded the move.

The Historic McConchie One-Room School is one of only three in Charles County currently open to the public. It is the only known one still in existence that originally served African-American students exclusively. The school now serves as a living museum and is open for tours and programs on the Fourth of July and during the Kris Kringle Christmas Market (three days) in December.
