Picture by Michael R. Wiebel, North Platte Telegraph.
The information on this page was taken in part from
the story "Schoolhouse stores memories of those who
where District 92", by Rose Mary Buhrman,
North Platte Telegraph, July 13, 1987.
The picture of the school building which
served District 92 from 1903 to 1964.
The school was also called Hunter School, because of the children of Hunter families that attended. It has also been known as Happy Hollow School and Medicine Trail School.
The school of District 92 stands empty today. The interior of the school building looks as it did when the school was closed in 1964. The building is still filled with rows of students' desks, and books on reading, writing and arithmetic are stored in a cupboard behind the teacher's desk. The interior of the building has been preserved by Danny Tobiasson, a former District 92 student, who farms the land surrounding the one-acre school site.
In the summer of 1987, a reunion was held at the school. The reunion was attended by
126 former students and teachers.
A list of students who attended this school in the years from 1910 to 1967. Note that I don't know where the students went to school from 1964 to 1967.
