Paris School and a barbed wire fence?

In doing my research for the location of Reid School at the Greenville County's Register of Deeds, I came across a deed for Paris School in deed book 278, page 20 that I just don't think would go over well in the 21st century:
... trustees are to erect and maintain a substantial wire fence around the said property at least 7 feet high with a barbed wire on top so as to prevent the School children from tresspassing upon the adjoining property.
Oh my! One of these days I'll have to research if that fence was actually built.
