District #24 - Crooked Creek &
|This old 1886 map clearly shows a Dist.
#24 school in the NW/4 of Sec 15-T30-R27, the green dotted
line indicates the school district.
This school was established in 1885, two
miles north of the town of Pearlette. It was said to have
been disorganized in 1899, but we have a teacher listed in
1904. It eventually became part of District #37, but
disappeared early on in Meade County history.
||This cut of the 1909 Meade County Plat
Book does not even show the school or District 24.
|This cut of a modern-day map shows the
school and the town of Pearlette in relation to Fowler and
other schools in the area.

We do not have a list of the students who
attended this school, however, the officers names were
Clark, Vick, Strader and Jobling. The schoolhouse was on
J.C. Clark land. This school may have been a sod house.
