District #13 (no school name)

Mertilla & West Plains Townships

We don't have a name for the school in District 13... it only lasted a few years and then it was absorbed by Dist. 34 on the very north and Dist. 62 for the most part.

District 13 was organized in 1891 and disorganized July 6, 1899. This school was probably in someone's home.

According to county records there were three teachers who taught in 13:
Bach, Alma 1891
Denny, Belle 1893
Boyer, Meda 1894

In the map above you can see where this district was (shaded green) and it's proximity to Plains. The school #62 that shows on the map was the district 62 school, Pleasant Home.
