Twenty-Five Rural Schools in Forest County

Hello Forest County Residents!

This week one of my volunteers, Sally Lyons, discovered a news article in the Forest Republican from May 26, 1938 that listed the eighth grade graduates from twenty-five  rural schools in the area. Thanks to Sally’s great eye for historically significant information we now have a  list  of  rural schools in the late 1930’s, which includes:

  • Fairview School
  • Boone School
  • Kokoma School
  • Engleking School
  • Sherman School
  • Wolf River School
  • Mole Lake School
  • Hillside School
  • Brookside School
  • Rummel School
  • Range Line School
  • Bonneval School
  • Stone Lake School
  • Blackwell School
  • Newald School
  • Carter School
  • Maple Valley School
  • Metonga School
  • Popple River School
  • Siding One School
  • Siding Two School
  • Windfall School
  • Woodlawn School
  • Greenview School
  • Elvoy School

If anyone has any photos of the rural schools or knows the location of some of the more obscure schools please share them with the Crandon Public Library.
