1893-1957 GLEANINGS As we gathered information from previously published articles, we noted several discrepancies as to the date the stone schoolhouse was built. We believe the correct date to be as reported in the Mount Horeb Times, which stated that construction was started in the fall of 1907. From the Mount Horeb Progress - January 25, 1893 Report of school District, No. 2:-Springdale, Dane county, Wis. Number enrolled for second month, 40; number of days taught, 18; number of holidays, 2; grand total days' attendance, 405; average daily attendance, 22.5. Not absent during month: Josie Sjutvedt, Emma Brustuen, Mikkel Mikkelson, Jas. Malone, and Herman Schettler. P. J. R. Post, teacher. From the Mount Horeb Times - December 28, 1893 Report of school district No. 2, Springdale, for the month commencing Nov. 20 and ending Dec. 15: No enrolled, 3 1; No, days taught, 19; holidays, 1; average daily attendance, 18.5; not absent during month, Jens Shelstad and Gay S. Fargo. P. J. R. Post, Teacher From the Mount Horeb Times - August 1, 1907 A new schoolhouse will in all probability be built in the Malone district this fall to take the place of the old one which has served the district for a long period of years. A modern building is contemplated with the latest approved ventilation and heating system. From the Mount Horeb Times - October 10, 1907 The new school building in the Malone district in Springdale will be a solid stone building, the stone dressed rock faced. Mr. Ayen has the contract for the entire job. Chas. Lindstrom is the mason, assisted by David Anderson.
