Schools of Murray County
There were many small, one room school houses dotting the prairie and mountain communities of Murray County at the turn of the century. In 1908, there were 30 districts. By 1936, there were at least 23 school districts in the county. Many of the wooden structures are no longer in existence. Some of the brick and stone buildings are now in use by farmers and ranchers as hay and equipment barns. This list is by no means all inclusive and we will be adding to the list as we learn of the schools. Click here for some photos of the old schools.
This is the condition of most Murray County Schools that still exists today. They are used either as a tool shed or hay barns. This old school is located in Sec. 11, T 1S, R 1E; or 3 miles west and 1 mile south of Davis.
