'The Eillcxge of Palmyra
The beautiful village ol Palmyra is situated in the south-eastern part of the county oi Iefferson
on Spring Lake of the Scuppernong river, on the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul railroad. It's name'
was taken from the ancient city of Palmyra located in Palestine, in Asyria.
Over seventy years ago the echoes of Cyrus Horton's ax broke the stillness of nature's sur-
roundings in this valley and the echoes have been ringing ever since. Dr. Causdale was the next

The Palmyra High School
Our High School is situated at the western extremity of the village on one of its most beauti-
ful streets. Spacious grounds surround it, in which already grow several fine maple and oak trees.
Many other trees have been planted and in a few years will be another element of beauty in our
surroundings. The grounds which lie to the south and west of the school building are used by the
students as a playground, while those to the north and east, form the lawn with trees and flower beds.
Our school house was built in the year of 1896 and is a substantial structure of brick and
stone. We are justly proud of it, for it is one of the best structures in the village.
In the interior, the rooms are attractive and, for the most part, arranged so as to get the best
advantage of the light, as well as for conveniences.
