Information from 2013 p. 34 - History of Fountain County, Indiana -- there is a picture of the school itself stating it is the only one-room school that was still standing in 1983 (bottom of this page) - wonder if it's still there ? One mile east of Riverside on the north side of the road (School District #2 - Davis Township) and a picture of students but not sure what year - perhaps the 1925 graduating class - some of the students are: Dunkin; Pearson; Farrell; Morgan; Fay; Laxton; Wisma; Shell; Points; Lewsader - Hary Hawkins, teacher. (above picture dated 1890)
