Snokomo School Rating: None

The Snokomo School is one of the one-room schoolhouses that became quite a trend in rural areas in the 1800s. It was built around the 1860s, as proven by school board records. It was used for classes for seven months a year.

During the height of these one room school houses, Kansas was able to boast of only having an illiteracy rate of less than 3 percent. Factors like the end of the wars may have helped, but some also attribute the great statistics with the existence of such structures.

Today, the Snokomo School is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It offers tons of stories that you can find online, and when you visit the site. When driving to the school, though, you may pass by another 1890 stone schoolhouse of the same sort, but it would probably not be it.
