1. Antone School Marker
Inscription.  Marker One:
An open meeting place for a new generation, Antone Pavilion was built to pay tribute to the community’s roots, commemorating the school that once helped build dreams and change the lives of early settlers. After years of sending children to faraway Pleasanton Elementary school, in 1911 families in rural Dublin came together to collect money for a school of their own. With $1,280 in raised funds and land donated by Mr. Antone, a one-room schoolhouse was soon built in 1912. The aptly named Antone School served students from kindergarten to eighth grade for generations before finally closing its doors in 1943.
Antone Pavilion recalls days gone by where young minds were once opened to the world.
