The Menardville Historical Group will have as their meeting, as I was informed by Jake Landers, a visit to the Long Mountain Community on Sunday, April 6 at 3:00 p.m. by visiting the old school which was built in 1915 when the Long Mt. School combined with the Leon School and in 1929, the Haystack School was combined with Long Mt.
The original Long Mt. school was locatedjust north of the cemetery and was named as School District 13 in 1882.
The original tract of land (4 acres) for the school was donated to the school by my Great Grandfather, Henry Woodward. The visit will also include the Cemetery, which was a part of the original school ground with the first grave to be Cornelous Jackson, a Union soldier of the Civil War, in 1889.
The old building was used as community church until it burned by some mystery in 1934. All are welcome to join the tour.
