Wheeler School, a one room school, was built in the late 1860’s on the farm currently owned by the Harrison Family Wheeler Schoolnear Alexandria.  Mr. W. E. B. DuBois became the first instructor at the school.  In fact, it was the beginning of his long successful career in the education field.  He traveled the world promoting education.  The school represents the historical significance of early education for the period following the Civil War.

The building and artifacts exemplifies what one would expect in a one room school in the rural community.

Wheeler School was reconstructed in Fiddlers Grove in 1994 by the Wilson County Civic League.
