DIXIELAND SCHOOL

100 YEARS OF EDUCATION

OCTOBER 1913 – 2013

 

 “In February of 1913 residents of the Dixieland Farming District realized the need for a local school. They petitioned the County and the resulting school was named Munich, which came from a group of residents who migrated here from the town of Munich in the Dakotas. During World War I, public sentiment convinced the County to rename the school Dixieland. The small school house became the social nucleus of the neighborhood. The Women’s Club met here. Monthly dances with live bands were hosted, and people came from surrounding areas to attend the Christmas festivities. Today, the school continues as the centerpiece of the community.”
