(From University of Missouri Extension)

The "Missouri Directory of Historic and One-Room Schools" is now available for purchase on Amazon.com or at the Greene County MU Extension office.

The directory was created as part of the University of Missouri Extension community development program known as the Missouri Historic Schools Alliance. The book costs $15 and all proceeds benefit the administration of the Greene County Extension office.

The book details and photos on over 60 of the very best historic one-room schools in the state.

Individual and organizations that own an historic or one-room school in Missouri that is restored or is in the process of being restored can submit information for use in future book revisions. Written submissions and photos can be submitted by email (burtond@missouri.edu) or mailed to David Burton, Greene County Extension, 2400 S. Scenic Ave, Springfield, Mo. 65807.

Drivers are urged to use caution and reduce their speed when traveling over recently-sealed sections of highways.

A chip-seal is planned for these roads as an economical way to maintain and preserve the roadway. The treatments keep a road from deteriorating and will extend its life.
