Schools have been part and parcel of Wood County life for one and three quarter centuries. The first recognition of schools by the county commissioners dates back to June 1826, when half a mill on the dollar was ordered to be levied for school purposes, under the Act of 1825. In March 1836, Montgomery township was ordered to elect school trustees.
In 1837, Mrs William Gorril of Lemoyne had 33 students and a separate building. She started the school by inviting neighbor children to her own cabin for lessons.
A process of consolidation has developed to eliminate the "one room" schoolhouse. This project seeks to identify and illuminate all such schools located in Wood County, Ohio.
