Schools of the Past: Columbus – District #5 Bingham District

The first order of business with this article is an apology to the Warren Johnson family for the error in the April 13 article relevant to District #3 - Columbus Center. At the end of the article, the Columbus Historian had forwarded information to this writer that this school was located on the former Warren Johnson farm. Mrs. Johnson, upon reading the article, quickly informed Mrs. Avery that they still own this farm. A most sincere apology is given to them from both Mrs. Avery and me as an independent historian. To err is only human and at times we all err.



District #5, which we assume was the Bingham District, was located on what is now the Bingham/Collins Road near the Casey Cheese Factory roads. The photo of this district shows the schoolhouse in its original location and in poor condition; however there is a much happier ending to the story of this schoolhouse. The documentation of this is quoted entirely as it was forwarded to my attention and was written by Rose Wellman, presently Sherburne historian.
