11 Jun 1999: The Kansas Heritage Server would like to thank Joan Snyder (jsnyder@feist.com) for contributing this information on Butler County Schools.

I had this in columns but didn't go down that way. Anyway this is the list of Schools in Butler County in 1944 - 45. I read that each district was numbered in the order of starting. So do not know if those not listed such as 1, 3, 4, etc. were abandoned earlier. I was thinking Chelsia was the first school, but is listed 10. Just something I have to work on. The locations were taken from the addresses for the members of Board of Education for that school. This will give me an idea where the location is when looking at a map. Those with a * are schools I am interested in, as members of my family either attended or was a teacher. Joan Snyder
