Holmes School on South 6th Street.

This is a picture of the Holmes School that was on south 6th sreet. .Mary Griffin said in the Nov. 1984 Wagon Wheels- that the corner stone for the School was laid 1889.Mary also said that the school was built with 3 classrooms downstairs and 3 classrooms upstairs.This provided classroom space for 500 pupils.
The School was dismantled in the fall of 1984 by a crew out of Joplin. The crew found the School still to be sound and well built.The Corner Stone was a solid rock,they were hoping that the stone would have a place for records or information.
