Description

A yearbook for the 1969-1970 school year at T. W. Lawton Elementary School, located at 151 Graham Avenue in Oviedo, Florida. Originally called the Orlando School, the one-room schoolhouse was first constructed in 1876 in order to serve the three families that lived on Old Orlando Road, near Bear Bully. Julia Golden was the first teacher and most of the students were African Americans. When one of the families moved to Clonts Quarters during the first year, the school moved with them. In 1899, the school was moved to the middle of town. In 1922, Seminole County built a four-room brick schoolhouse with an auditorium seating 500. White students attended the new schoolhouse, while black students remained at the original school, then called Oviedo Elementary School and later renamed Jackson Heights. In 1923, the new school had its first graduating class.
