"Murphy School" was established by
Joseph R. Murphey,
who was also the headmaster until his death in 1857.
This school was established as a private
or "subscription" school characteristic of the day
and many a citizen of the Clarksburg community
received his or her education there.
Public schools as we know them came later.
