1. Camp Nine School Marker
Inscription.  St. Croix County was once dotted with one-room country schoolhouses, all of which have been razed or converted to other uses. Camp Nine School, which was located near Glenwood City, Wisconsin, was one of the last which could still be salvaged. The school and one of its original outhouses (donated by Ed Paulus) were moved and restored by the NR Preservation Society in 1993.

The name comes from Lumber Camp Nine when the school was built in 1902 to serve the camp children. It continued in use, eventually part of the Glenwood City school district, until the school year of 1957-58. The building was on land owned by Minnie Forrest, who donated the school to the society.
 
Erected by New Richmond Heritage Center.
