Badgett

Badgett, located on Farm Road 1212 in south central Martin County, was named for the R. A. Badgett family, who moved to the area from Mitchell County. Reported dates for the founding of the school district range from 1916 to 1926. The original school, which had two rooms and two teachers, was consolidated with the Courtney school in the late 1940s. Badgett no longer exists as a community.
