While ironically there was money for teacher salaries from the state government, there was no provision for land, buildings, or supplies. Washington initially found a dilapidated building near the Methodist church, which together with the church could be used as an assembly room. Both were in such poor condition that the ceilings often leaked when it rained. He describes the conditions in Tuskegee and the building of the school, "much like making bricks without straw".
