PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
The first school in the vicinity of the Junction was
taught by Miss Olive Hall at the house of S. D. Butz, as
early as 1839. The present fine school house was erected
in 1872 at a cost of $4,ooo. The spacious grounds attached
to it are surrounded by shade trees and a hedge through
the center of it divides the play-grounds of the boys and
girls. The present principal of the school is Wm. P. Collins
and his able assistant is Miss Myrtie Larkin. The course
of instruction is graded into primary, intermediate and
grammar. The average attendance is about 95, and the
present school committee are: D. E. Thorpe, R. J.
Greenman and L. T. Rogers.
