The 1867 Birth of Joint District #3 from the townships of Pine Valley and Weston.


The discovery of this amazing historic document sheds light on the earliest days of Clark County, Wisconsin.  It details how a log school house was planned and built, giving it's location, dimensions and description.  After its construction, over forty years of operational consideration is recorded and the involvement of many people from that early time is also noted.  This is a project in progress as we'd like to obtain additional information and photos if possible.  We've ordered the original 1867 deed to help us determine exactly where this building was situated and will including that as soon as possible.  If you know where this school was located, can add additional information or are willing to transcribe some of the photographed pages, please let us know!
