Country School Recollections — Price County One Room Schools, 1879 To Consolidation
Country School Recollections — Price County One Room Schools, 1879 To Consolidation by The Committee for Research on Price County Rural Schools
By 1879, the wilderness of Price County started to be tamed, and families began to settle in the area. With the families came the need for schools. This book is a true historical treasure chronicling the story of the one-room schools in all regions of the county. The schools sprang out of the wilderness and played a vital role in the education of the children in Price County. Extensive research went into documenting the locations of each school according to the township in which it was situated. Teacher training, duties, typical school days, student life and socials, and field trips are all covered in great detail. Each school’s history is chronicled along with photographs if they were available. An alphabetical index of schools, towns, and teachers concludes the book.
