Grand Forks in Grand Forks County, North Dakota — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
Blooming 46 School House
Due to the consistent need for teachers in the rural areas and in an effort to provide better educational opportunities for students, county superintendents sought to consolidate the county schools. Transportation difficulties, however, limited the distance that children could travel to attend school and many one room schools remained in operation for decades. Blooming 46 closed its doors to students in the mid-1960's. It was purchased and moved to the Grand Forks County Historical Society grounds in 1981.
Erected 2013 by Myra Foundation.
