Description

Built as an elementary school. When multiple rural districts merged to create Avoca Central School, part of the negotiated agreement required a new grade school in Howard. The Howard Grade School was built as part of the project whose main purpose was creating the central school. The Public Works Administration supported the overall project with a $99,000 grant. Howard School is now in private hands, and used for business purposes.
