School Dedication & Alumni Reunion

District 24 began holding classes in the one-room school in 1907 and continued through spring 1959. In 2014, the Historical Society moved the building to the museum campus in La Crosse to preserve it as “an educational resource to tell the story of a time when over 80 one-room schools dotted the landscape of Rush County.”

SSG Roger K. Greenway Memorial Flag Dedication

SSG Roger K. Greenway was born in La Crosse, Kansas on July 4, 1947 and died in Quang Tin Province in Vietnam on January 1, 1970 while serving in the United States Army. Greenway was the great-grandson of William Mottern Greenway, who homesteaded in Rush County in 1880.

The Pleasant Point School Project...

One Room School The Rush County Historical Society has completed restoration of a one-room school moved to the Grass Park museum campus from 6½ miles south of Nekoma in rural Rush County.

The century-old school house, one of the last of its kind, has been restored and maintained as it was in the early 1900s. In addition, it will provide an opportunity for area youth to experience learning in a setting similar to that of their ancestors.

One Room School As a museum, the building will provide a place to house objects relevant to early education in Rush County along with collections from pioneer educator Howard Barnard.

If you would like to visit our newest museum, contact us to arrange a tour.
