. Cove Creek High School was erected in 1941 by the Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) in conjunction with the local and state governments to meet the educational needs of a growing rural community. The heritage of the school begins with the earliest origins of education in western Watauga County and the Cove Creek Community. Because early school records were destroyed in the county courthouse fire of 1873, the only information about early educational history emanates from a few documentary photographs, oral histories, church minutes, and other similar sources.
