Description

In 1938, a fire destroyed the Noonday School. The community furnished $17,682 and the Works Progress Administration (WPA) added $9,368 for the construction of a new school. The WPA built a new eight-room brick school house the same year. The building is currently a combination city hall, library and community center.
