SCHOOL SOLD

The Pearl Creek school house, (district 3) was sold with the site at a public auction, Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock to Joseph Powers for $177. The sale of books, pictures and bookcases brought about $25. James E. Murphy was the auctioneer and Mrs. George Powers the clerk.
This was one of the oldest school districts in Covington and was established in 1817. The location of the school at that time was 1/2 mile north of the present location. The school was moved in this location in 1860. The present building was constructed in 1868 or just after the Civil War. It was remodeled on land purchased from A. Brown and Philanda Brown for $100.

I wonder if it is still there?
