Bell School, 1955

Bell School


​Little history is know (by the webmaster) about this school. If you can contribute any historical information regarding this school, please send a note to jem1204@sbcglobal.net and I'll add it to the website for all to share.


​The school was in operation in 1914, as evidenced by the graduation program shown below. It closed in 1947 when there was only two pupils: Crystal Allen and Larry Helton. The building, while abandoned and overgrown with brush, still stands (but barely).​  The picture below was taken in 1955. The school was located on what is now Dairy Avenue, Elmer, Missouri.

Bell School # 16 (circa 1910) when Ethel Shumaker (center of photo) was teacher.
