Admin/Biographical History The first schoolhouse to be used in rural Clay County was a chapel, built in 1872 or '73. The chapel was used as a Union Church, public school and a town meeting hall until 1882 when a separate school building was erected at a cost of $300.00. This building was used until 1894 or '95 and then replaced with a new building at a cost of $500.00.

The first records on file for the school were from the teachers report for the year of 1878. The first financial report was from the year 1882. The first teacher was Nelson E. Fulton. The officers for the year 1882 were Charles Rugg, clerk, PP Still, director, Christian Anderson, Treasurer.
