Prarie from Springwater School | Pradaria na Escola Springwater

11 miles east, 2 north of Rowley I came across an abandoned schoolhouse, Springwater School.

 

The local farmers hired a man named Mr. Shields, who was a stone mason, to engineer the building of the school. It was built of stone found in the area and completed in 1922. The school was named Springwater because of several springs in the area. Ten students were present on opening day. The first teacher was Mrs. P. Manchester. The school remained open until June, 1942
