Schools of the Past: Guilford District #13, Ives Settlement School


Two weeks ago the article written was the “Trestle School” which still stands, very much different that the photo that accompanied the article, located on County Road 35 from Guilford to Sidney. After a brief vacation (Thanksgiving holiday) we again return to the same area of the Township of Guilford and travel a short distance down County Road 35 less than a mile to the “Ives Settlement Road.” Making a right hand turn on this road travel approximately two-three miles and you will come to a settlement of farms. This is Ives Settlement! The photo that accompanies this article shows what was then the remains of the Ives Settlement schoolhouse when the photo was taken. This writer apologizes for the quality, but it a copy from a copy, which is not the best situation to deal with. If my information is correct, and I will stand corrected I am sure if I am incorrect, the former site of this school was just east of the Ives Family Cemetery.
