West View Schoolhouse

West View Schoolhouse was a historic public school building located at Weyers Cave, Augusta County, Virginia. It has since been demolished. It was a two-room schoolhouse with the first room built about 1875, and the second added by 1890. It was of frame construction with a limestone and brick foundation. The interior was considered the least altered and best preserved of all the surviving one- and two-room schools in Augusta County.[3]
