History of Hedgcoxe
Hedgcoxe Elementary was named for English-born Henry Oliver Hedgcoxe, 1800-60, a land agent for the Peters Colony. His highhanded attempts in 1852 to establish land titles led to the colonists' uprising, in what has been called the Hedgcoxe War.
The school was completed in 1990 at the cost of nearly $8 million.
