Four miles east 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 Number 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 of 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.
