1871 Schools Of The 12 Townships of Jefferson County
USGenWeb

This listing of Schools of Jefferson County comes from the information transcribed by Dorothy Rathbun from an 1871 Jefferson County map provided by Janet Roberts.  An Atlas of these maps showing these schools has been prepared by and is available from the Jefferson County Genealogical Society.

Names are listed alphabetically showing the township and the section of the township in which the school was located.  The names of the shools were not listed on the map but were added to the information from other sources.  The map only notes a "school."  This listing of the school provides only those in the rural areas.  Schools in the towns may not be listed here.
