LIVENGOOD School - Fountain County INGenWeb Project

Go to content


Location of this school sat on a small hill on the east side of County Road 630 E & one-half mile south of State Road 32. Andrew Livengood gave the property in 1879. Seems like it's always the people who were interested in education in general or who had a lot of children (11 total for Andrew) that gave the property for these schools. The last group to graduate from this school was likely in 1911-1912. Page 78 of the 2013 awesome History of Fountain County, Indiana tells more and shows a picture of the school and several students probably the last year it existed?
