Flowerfield School

Welcome to Flowerfield School living history program. This is a cooperative effort of ESU 13 and the Banner County Historical Society.  This project allows students to step back in time.  Nebraska panhandle fourth graders have the opportunity to experience a school day as it would have been in 1888. To see the curriculum visit their website at www.esu13.org. 

 

A bit about the namesake of the Flowerfield  school project.  Flowerfield is the name of a precinct in the southwest corner of Banner County.  The Flowerfield log school  was perhaps the earliest school in Banner County.  It was built in 1886 of logs from the hills in the north portion of the  Flowerfield precinct.  This was three years before Banner County was formed. School was held in this building for a number of years before being replaced by Flowerfield dist. # 58.  The log school building was moved to the museum grounds in Harrisburg in 1974.
