Elk Township Historical Society

Scandia’s One-Room School (1878 – 1999)

March 26, 2023

The purpose of the Elk Township  Historical Society is to promote an appreciation of Elk Township’s history and its natural environment, particularly the contribution of its 12 one-room schools.  Another purpose is to provide a Community Center offering educational programs for all ages and a place for organizations to hold meetings and groups to hold informal gatherings, such as showers and graduation parties.  A spacious playing field, a well-equipped playground, and a modern pavilion provide the perfect rural setting for family reunions.
