Old Ellerbe School | Ellerbe Road School | George Washington Carver High School

The Ellerbe Road School, known once as the George Washington Carver High School, near Shreveport, LA.

The Ellerbe Road School, also known once as the George Washington Carver High School was originally opened in 1957. Due to financial problems, the school closed down again by 1973. Although there are rumors that there was a fire at the school and several students were killed, this has not been verified by our research.

After the school closed down, it was vacant until 1981 when the property was leased for use as a Baptist Christian College. The college closed four years later in 1985. Since that time, the property has been abandoned except for some livestock. The building is currently slated for demolition.

Some locals claim that a janitor at the school molested some students there. One day, the janitor and a few of the students were inexplicably missing. What happened after their disappearance remains a mystery.

A water tower on the Ellerbe Road School property is used as a divining pool at times by brave souls who climb the rusty ladder (which is not recommended, by the way). The reflection in the pool of water seen by peering into the top of the tower is said to provide an account of the viewer’s death day.

Still other rumors say that people practiced black magic on the premises. Some locals claim that the campus was the site of a Civil War battle.

The school is located in Caddo Parish, Louisiana on Ellerbe Road.
