Dallas Centennial 1870-1970 : August 15-16, 1970
([1970?])

Schools


In 1889 a one room frame schoolhouse was
built. This was located west of the depot or just
east of the present Assembly of God Church.
By 1903 there was a need of a larger school.
A two story three room school was built on the
site of the present school. It cost $1750.00. It con-
sisted of nine grades and had three teachers.
In 1922 it was decided to build a larger and
sturdier school. The old frame building was torn
down and a brick building put up. John Harstad
was the contractor. It contained four classrooms;
a gymnasium, a stage, a furnace,, and bathrooms.
There were eight grades plus two years of high
school.
In 1950 the high school was dropped, and the
students attended the surrounding high schools. The
year 1955 found the school district consolidating
with the Barron school system.
In 1956 a classroom for kindergarten and a
lunchroom were added to the building. At present
there are six grades plus kindergarten classes in
attendance at Dallas. Six grades are being bussed
to Barron to attend Junior and Senior High there.
Emmett Amdall is our local representative on
ihe school board.
