The Little Greenbrier School is located off Wears Cove Road in the northern section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It is one of four buildings remaining in this historic area and one of two schoolhouses remaining in the park. Having been built in 1881, it served not only as the local school but also as the local church of the Primitive Baptist faith. It is still in use today, not for regular school but for special programs, tours, and church activities. The school has gone through several phases—school, church, park use for programs, homecomings for the local families, and singing schools. Despite being 140 years old and counting, this landmark and other nearby buildings continue to draw thousands of first-time and repeat visitors yearly.
