Aside from the industries that drew inhabitants to Durham, schools and churches were the earliest institutions in the county, leaving an account of tradition and history. The earliest schools, recorded in 1850, include the Shady Hill Academy for boys and girls, an academy for boys, and a private school in D.C. Parrish. Educators such as L. T. Buchanan were drawn to the county, setting up their own schools and imparting knowledge to future leading citizens.
