Morris County Garfield School is on display at Ag Heritage Park.

Searching for School Stories

The late Edla (Mostrom) Freeland and her daughter Gloria Freeland did research and put together a booklet, "District Schools of Morris County, Kansas."

Edla and Gloria discovered they had ample information and photos for many of the 89 Morris County schools and not much for others. Gloria wants to update the information and eventually have copies of the book printed.

Edla and her sister Edith attended the Marion Hill School and graduated from Dwight High School. Edith, who married E.G. "Bud" Keys, was a life-long resident of Morris County, and she taught more than 30 years in the county. The sisters also attended the Marion Hill Lutheran Church and their uncle, J.J. Richard, was a pastor at the church for many years.

If you would share information, stories or photos of any of the schools, please contact Gloria at
