Last time I talked about what I call relics of the rural past; one-room schoolhouses, rural post offices, and crossroads general stores, for example. Following up on that post, I dug out a detailed topographic map, dating from the s, that used to belong to my dad.

It was part of a series of such maps put out by the U. Geological Survey. This particular one covers the northeast part of Greene County, Missouri including Fair Grove and Strafford , the western edge of Webster County, the southern part of Dallas, and the southeast corner of Polk. I was struck by the number of small, rural schools listed on the map that, as far as I know, do not exist today.

And this, mind you, covers just a small area of about 18 by 14 miles. Of the schools mentioned above the one that was closest to Fair Grove, where I grew up, was Hickory Barren.
I well remember when Hickory Barren closed and was consolidated with Fair Grove. I was starting third grade when the kids who had previously gone to Hickory Barren came to Fair Grove; so this would have been the fall of Most of the others probably closed about the same time or even earlier. If anybody knows anything about any of the other schools I've listed above, I'd enjoy hearing from you. By the way, Elkland in Webster County, also falls within the boundaries of this map, and it used to have a high school that, sometime in the late s, consolidated with Buffalo, Fair Grove, and Marshfield.
For many years after that, it had only an elementary school, which was part of the Marshfield school system.
I'm not sure whether Elkland still has a grade school or not. Wood: I seen that you are interested in Robbie Camden. They wanted us to have all types of insurance and things before we could even move it. Funds to move the school were provided by the Pearl Foundation.

The museum had to build a foundation and reconstruct the roof. They also placed new siding on the school, as well as new windows. And while it may not be the school they went to, it reminds them of where they did.
