School Notes:

First school in Wakefield

The first school ever taught in Wakefield township was by Miss Lucy Morey, who commenced January 7th, 1875. The Children of Mr. Barto consistuted the whole school. He was director, C.I. Blake was moderator and Philo Graves treasurer. The three were about all the heads of families in the district, and as moderator and treasurer were unable to furnish scholars for the school, that duty devolved entirely upon the director as above stated.

Hiland W. Martin

From the "Year Book of the College of Law of the University of Nebraska, a record of the school year 1905-1906

Hiland W. Martin. Was born at Ponca, Nebraska, but a present his residence is Wakefield. Is a graduate of Brown's Business College of Sioux City, Iowa; an expert stenographer and one of the busiest men at the University. Speaks to everybody if he happens to look down and see them. Is just a few inches under seven feet tall and not fat. His "notes" seem to be in demand. Intends to practice law when he graduates and if he uses the same energy after finishing his course that he uses in school will be a success.

Lime Grove School
The school was named Lime Grove school and it  was closed in 1956 when it was consolidated with the Maskell and Obert school. My cousin Lillian Rickett was in the sixth grade when it closed and grew up a mile north of the school.

I am not sure when the school was built, but my grandmother Ida Nelson Packwood lived a mile south in the 1890s and walked to Maskell to go to school. She used to tell about having to walk past an indian campground that was located between their home place and Maskell. Submitted by Michael Fluent, Wayne Ne
