Original Mountain Valley School

SchoolThe original Mountain Valley School was located at this site for 83 years. In 1874, Carl and Matilda Marschall sold one acre to Fritz Krause, Fritz Pantermuehl and Joachim Pantermuehl for use as a school.

The nearby Jacobs Creek School joined the new school in a one-room log cabin, which served from 1874 until 1883, when it was converted into a teacherage and a new school, which also served as a church meeting place, was built.

In 1956, the county reorganized the school district, closing the small, rural schools that had served their communities for decades.

The district sold this property in 1962. (2002)
