Four miles out of Lebanon, on the Wilmington road, stands a new and handsome brick edifice, the marble slab on the front bearing the inscription, "Greenwood School Sub-District Num. ber Eleven, 1888.

The building is surrounded by a green, level yard and in front stand four fine large maples, also one near the west window of the house. On the first morning in October there might have been seen, hastening to this pleasant scene, little groups of children in response to the call of the rich toned bell in the neat belfry. Passing through the vestibule, they found themselves in one of the most comfortable and best furnished school-rooms. Here they have every convenience for study, recitation, exercise and for making and keeping clean their busy little hands and bright faces. The furniture is of the latest style and elegantly finished and the citizens of this district may well be proud of their new school-house with all its pretty and convenient arrangements. And most of all should they congratulate themselves on their good fortune in procuring so excellent a teacher as Mrs. A. J. Mardis, of Sunny Side, who has been a very successful teacher in Montgomery county for a number of years and it is to hoped that the parents and children of Greenwood will so appreciate her kind instructions and the influence of her pleasant and agreeable manners that she may be a power for good among them for many years.
