Schools: Newark Township

Rock County, Wisconsin

According to the 1873 atlas and 1917 atlas for Rock County, there were nine rural schools in Newark
Township. I do not know which school was Newark Center and which was Newark Elementary; one was in Section 18, the other in Section 22. Smythe school was either the one in Section 1 or the one in Section 25.
The location and current status of these school buildings is given below (using the modern road names).
The numbers given to each school are mine and not district numbers.
