Country Schools were located so students seldom had to travel over 2 to 3 miles to school, usually on foot. Many schools were simply identified by the section or township they were located in, often with a number. Here in Southwest Iowa, many counties have identified the location of these schools, and placed marker signs. Sometimes these schools were named for a nearby family, or a geographical feature. A few of them, well take a look at a couple.
It's situated in a low lying area not far from a river, so the name makes sense.
Well, um, I guess, um, I just don't know. But, it was probably a tough school!
