The Log Schoolhouse
The first little log school was built as a community effort in Houston in 1916. Harry Davis, an early resident and school trustee of this area, donated several acres of land for a school, located approximately where the community hall is situated in 1998.
George Dungate and Andrew Martinson were among those who cut logs and dovetailed them by hand and put up the building.
The school housed a wood heater, teacher's desk, several rows of students’ desks, a large book cupboard, and a coat rack.
