Franklin Township High School
1904 - 1932
Franklin Township High School served this community as the first public school with grades one through twelve.
Although fire destroyed the building in December 1932, fire did not destroy the burning desire for education that had been established by the first settlers in this area.
A new school was erected across the valley to the northwest in 1935 with grades one through eight.
