Early Education

In 1824, the first school house was built in Washington Township. It was a log schoolhouse built just south of the Washington Village. The citizens of the the town obviously found it necessary to educate the young about being good citizens and moral individuals.  Students were taught how to read and write, and read books that were bible-centered, and told moral tales. The first teacher was a Miss Emeline Allen, and she was succeeded by Issac Andrus that following winter. Many teachers would come and go over the next few years, but the same teaching tactics were still used. This would be the only school in Washington Twp. until 1916, when the Washington High School was built.

  1. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Cheers!

  2. Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance
    from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  3. Link exchange is nothing else but it is only placing the other person’s website
    link on your page at proper place and other person will also do same for you.

  4. I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a
    lot more useful than ever before.

  5. Everything is very open with a really clear explanation of the challenges.

    It was definitely informative. Your site is extremely helpful.

    Many thanks for sharing!

  6. Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is a very well
    written article. I’ll make sure to bookmark it and return to read
    more of your useful info. Thanks for the post. I will definitely
    return.

  7. Excellent post however I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this topic?

    I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit further.

    Thanks!

  8. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.
    Nevertheless think of if you added some great graphics or videos to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site
    could certainly be one of the best in its field.
    Amazing blog!

  9. Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this
    site before but after reading through some of the post I
    realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and
    checking back frequently!

  10. Howdy are using WordPress for your blog platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you
    require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  11. I know this web site presents quality dependent articles and additional
    material, is there any other web page which offers such data in quality?

  12. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your website.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues?

    A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but
    looks great in Opera. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?

  13. Heya i’m for the first time here. I found this board and I find It truly
    useful & it helped me out much. I hope to give
    something back and aid others like you helped me.

  14. Link exchange is nothing else but it is simply placing the
    other person’s website link on your page at suitable
    place and other person will also do same in favor of you.

  15. I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest
    but your blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back later on. All the best
