In 1929, Echols School in Dry Valley was destroyed by fire. Classes were moved to nearby Antioch Baptist Church. This photograph shows students on the steps of the church including, from left to right (front row) J.D. Pledger, Sidney Dooley, and Lewis Payton. One of the two remaining boys in front is Joe Denson.
