On Sunday, October 1st, 2023, Hickory Withe Presbyterian Church hosted an open house for the Hickory Withe School History Exhibit at the church’s fellowship hall which was Hickory Withe School from 1936 – 1968. It was a wonderful celebration of Hickory Withe’s history as well as community fellowship for the 75-100 guests in attendance, which included 13 former students. The exhibit includes wall-mounted displays documenting the school history as well as numerous items original to the school such as the crock container used to store water and a student’s tin cup used to drink water drawn from the cistern behind the W.A. Whitworth General Store. Pictured are first row L to R, Bobby Russell, Billy Whitworth, Judith Clements Webb, Jane Hodges Mitchell, Hester Smith, Butch Jones, and Aubrey Hilliard.
