Formed in 1897, when the Quitman Male and Female College consolidated with Central Collegiate Institute of Conway to become what is now named Hendrix College. The former Quitman College turns into Quitman Public School until the facility burned in a fire in 1932. A new Quitman Elementary School is constructed and remains in use until 1964. Now, that building serves as the Building Trades facility for Quitman High School.[2]
