In 1874, the schoolhouse had increased to 33 enrolled pupils. It was at this time, that the pupils had to start paying tuition, which was $5 a month. Pay for the teachers went down to $15 for a three-month term, and in 1877 James Roberts was the teacher. In 1884, the school's enrollment had increased enough for them to hire an aid that was helpful to a teacher. The teacher then became the principal. The salary for the assistant was $15 a month, and the principal's salary was $35 a month.
In 1892, the board decided it was time to build a new schoolhouse. It cost $450. Liberty Hill was able to maintain a decent enrollment throughout the years. In 1940, there were 68 pupils and one teacher. Not too long after, in 1952, there wasn't much use for the school, as black students were starting to be bused into schools inside of town. It was then that the school was permanently closed. The schoolhouse has been since registered on the National Register of History Places.
