Inscription.  Goldmine Consolidated School was created by the combination of Sandy Grove and Old Goldmine Schools in 1924. It’s size was augmented by Duncan’s pupils when the school was closed in the early 1930s. Grades one through nine were taught in a new brick building to which an auditorium for vocational instruction, sports, drama and assembly was added later. The cannery and shop served both the school and the community. A teacherage was built nearby. The gym was destroyed by a tornado in 1944 and not rebuilt. Goldmine closed in 1956, the students being divided between Eagle Grove and Vanna.
 
Erected 2007 by Hart County Historical Society.
