Afao

Afao is a village in southwest Tutuila Island, American Samoa. It is located on the island's short southwestern coast, between 'Amanave and Leone, to the southwest of Pago Pago. It includes the settlement of Atauloma. Afao is home to two places listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places: Afao Beach Site and Atauloma Girls School.

In 1899, the London Missionary Society (LMS) started to raise funds to construct a girls’ school at Atauloma, and after $10,000 had been collected, Commandant Benjamin Franklin Tilley was invited to lay the cornerstone of its concrete structure. The girls' school was constructed in 1900 as the second secondary school on Tutuila Island, and the first school on the island to accept female students. It was established by the LMS and provided graduates to the nursing school at the naval station in Pago Pago. The school is located at the western edge of Afao, in Atauloma. The school was completed in 1900 and set on a 70 by concrete slab, facing towards the ocean. The second floor and peaked roof were made of California fir and redwood. The large spacious rooms on the first floor have 14 ft ceilings.
