Storys Creek Schoolhouse

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 5 October 2019 in Landscape & Rural.

Storys Creek School was a one room schoolhouse. It was originally north of Eminence, MO. It served as the main school from 1896 to 1957. It was moved in 1971 to be part of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways Park near Alley Spring, Missouri. My aunt went to this school.

It's good to have been able to keep track of this past so as not to forget (otherwise than in pictures) how it was
Is the interior also original? -bancs, objects etc ... -

My mother taught in a 2 room school much like this one in west Texas. I'm glad this one was preserved.
