||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.
Historical Day/Museum Open House will be Saturday,
