First Consolidated School in the State

A2005.10.1

Hello Forest County Residents!

Below I have attached a brief history of the Argonne School written by Nona Sears. The Argonne School holds the title of the first consolidated school in the state. The town officials closed the rural schools in the area and bussed in the children using horse drawn  buses. This allowed them to have a high school, to hire several teachers, and have competitive sports teams.
