Exhibit 3

Ruthville – historic free town

13100 The Glebe Lane

Little remains of the once-thriving community of Ruthville. Elam Baptist Church, the Post Office and the old high school for African American students are all that remain. Stop here to read the highway marker and to view a wayside exhibit in front of the high school which traces the story of African American education at this community center.
