Schools of the Past: Bainbridge Join Dist. #13 Newton/Doolittle and Dist. #14 (15/11) Bainbridge Village

Returning once again to the Township of Bainbridge we take a brief look at the small district located in the southwest corner of the town. This small district, for which we have no information this writer has applied the names Newton/Doolittle, as the settlers’ names appear in close proximity to the location of the school site. You will note by the district lines that part of this district lies within the Town of Afton. As the school records for this small district have not surfaced, the only possibility is if in researching deeds (at another time) pertinent information will surface. As this writer has stated many times before, it is somewhat of a crime that it was not dictated that when the centralization of the schools, which first surfaced during the 1930s, the school records from these buildings were not maintained in one specific place, but that is the course which was taken at the time. The many records of all the one-room schools throughout the county have more or less been scattered to the wind. What a shame!
