Schools:  New City School

New City School, 1948

The first school in this district was located on the farm owned by Lee Hutchins.  It was built of logs.  In 1870, a frame school was put up.  it had no basement.  Still later a brick school house was built.  It still stands.

New City, at the junction of Co. Trunk X and Hwy. 93 was a small hamlet consisting of a flour mill, blacksmith shop operated by Albert Bautch, a farmer.  Nick Rumpel operated a tavern and dance hall.  New City disappeared when a railroad depot was built at the site of present day Independence.  The locality is still called New City.

Early settlers in the district were George Kuka, John Smith, Abraham Berghee, Steve Baker, Tom Gamroth, Joe Tomaske, Peter Kuhn, Peter Bautch, Tom Matchey and Emil Graul.

The school term was for 6 months and the teach was paid $25.00 per month and had to do all the janitor work.
