Onancock takes no action on Accomac High School building

The historic Accomack Primary School will be renovated into offices for the School Board.

By Carol Vaughn —

Onancock’s Town Council took no action during a recent meeting on a request made by Tommy Hines to support Accomac officials’ effort to save the 1932 Accomac High School building.

Hines is a member of the Accomac Town Council.

The Accomack County School Board is in the process of deciding whether to renovate the building or tear it down and build a new structure to house school board offices. The school district currently uses the building for storage.

The town of Accomac is asking other towns in the county “that have people that went to that school” to add their support to saving the old school building, Hines said.

He noted the building is in a historical area.

“We’re just asking the towns to help another town out,” by voicing support for saving the building to both the school board and the Accomack County Board of Supervisors, he said.
