Massillon Schools

Charity Rotch School of Kendal

Charity Rotch School of Kendal opened in 1829 and permanently closed in 1910. Students who attended school at that time became wards of the school until they reached an age of 18. After the school closed in 1910, the funds were managed by a foundation. That foundation still uses those funds to assist student programs that serve needy children in Western Stark County and the surrounding area.

Hall School: John Hall Fund papers
The John Hall Fund was set up under the terms of the will of John Hall of Massillon, Ohio, in 1854. He left the proceeds from the sale of his estate as a fund for the education of African-American children. Arvine C. Wales was appointed administrator for the estate. The terms of the will were challenged in court as being too vague, by whom it is not known, but the will was upheld. Arvine C. Wales continued to act as a Trustee, followed by Frank L. Baldwin, James H. Hunt, and others, mainly lawyers, to the 1970s.
