Inscription.  In 1930 four small community schools including Old Branch, Groveton, Prentiss, and Line Prairie were consolidated to form the Branch School. Located on this site, the campus consisted of a school building built in 1930 and a gymnasium built in 1938. On February 1, 1947, the school building burned. The gymnasium and a nearby church were used to house classes until a new school building was constructed the following year. The Branch School closed its doors in 1957.
