At the school meeting held Monday night, it was resolved to build a two-story frames schoolhouse next year on what is called the Huntzicker lot on the North Side. It will have modern improvements, at a cost, including furnaces, not to exceed $4,000. The lot of one acre can be purchased from Geo. Huntzicker for $800, payable in two years without interest. M.C. Ring, J.W. Tolford and Daniel Kennedy were chosen as a committee to procure plans and specifications.
(The Neillsville North Side Grade School operated as such until 1964. The building was razed and is now the site of "Kliff's Park." It seems fitting that a lot is still the center for the North Side area children to gather for outdoor recreational activities. The sounds of children playing was heard when the school building was surrounded by a playground starting in the late 1800's and continues today – Dee Zimmerman)
