Please email the SK ORSH webmaster if you have information any of the missing legal land description of the above School Houses. Several sources were consulted to add the legal land descriptions. The GPS coordinates added courtesy of the Clayton McLain Memorial Museum. In 2012 as part of the Cut Knife Centennial project all one room schoolhouse sites, cemeteries and points of interest were visited and photographed and their GPS locations recorded. At the museum, they have a couple of original one room schoolhouses moved onto their grounds as noted above, the interiors have been furnished with historical artifacts from the one room schoolhouse era. School banners, pupil listings, teacher listings, and histories of a few of the schoolhouses are also visible inside the museum. Thank you.
