S.S. #11, Pinkerton School

S.S. #11, Pinkerton School
This school was named after surveyor and settler Matthew Pinkerton. He built the log schoolhouse in 1840 on the NE corner of his lot (Con. 10, lot 6). A new, brick school was built in 1873 kitty-corner to the old one by Thomas Sleight, and was the first of its kind in the area. By 1908, a better brick school was built with two entrances and a bell tower, the one seen in the photograph. The school was in use at least until the late 1950s.
