Wedding & Event Venue, Meeting Place, Community Center, and Stage
Originally, Locust Grove Academy circa 1874, The Old Stone School is situated just outside the eastern town limits of Hillsboro, Virginia on Route 9. The original building was built in 1874, and the brick auditorium was added in 1929. Though it operated as a school until 1966 when Hillsboro Elementary opened, it now serves as a community center where the non-profit Friends of the Old Stone School (formerly the Hillsboro Community Association), which manages and maintains the building, hosts events and activities. The building may also be rented for your special events, business meetings, workshops, and more!

What is Friends of the Old Stone School/Hillsboro Community Association? After sitting vacant for 10 years, the historic building was facing the very real threat of being demolished. A group of residents and former students gathered to save the building from this fate, forming the Hillsboro Community Association. This non-profit continues to manage the building, focusing efforts on bringing the community together with events and protecting the building through restoration and renovations efforts with the Town of Hillsboro. This historic building continues to unite our community and we are proud to celebrate and protect this historic landmark of our community. You can help by joining our efforts.
The Old Stone School is located at 37098 Charles Town Pike in Hillsboro, Virginia 20132.
We to to raise $8,500 in donations by May 15, 2016 or we will not be able to have this wonderful celebration this year!
Every year, the non-profit Friends of the Old Stone School (formerly the Hillsboro Community Association) loses thousands of dollars on the fireworks because we don’t get enough donations. This is money we need to pay bills, to maintain the historic building, and to make much needed repairs.
Last year, we lost $4,792 on the fireworks because we didn’t receive enough donations to cover the cost of the fireworks.
