if IYIEAXIIQ :Bo-onli THE WALNUT CREEK HIGH SCHOOL Previous to the year 1915 when Percy Miller was teaching the upper grades he gave the upper grade students work equivelant to the ninth year, as, Algebra, German, Literature. This work was not recognized by the state since no high school had been established. A third grade high school was started in 1915-16 with Mr. Beechy as teacher. This lasted two years, 1915-16-17. Miss Nellie A. Yoder was added to the teaching staff for 1917-18, when the school was made a second grade high school. In 1923 it became a first grade school with three teachers. The new school building was erected during the summer of 1925. In the fall of 1957 the six-six plan was adoptedg that is, six years of grade school and six years of high school. Because of the in- crease of students and extra teacher had to be added to the teaching staff. We now have four high school teachers and quite an active, indus- trious school. illdfilf ll QI 4 'D i

VIE A ID II3'D 'D Ili BRIEF HISTORY OF WALNUT GREEK Walnut Greek was laid out in 1826, with Sam Robinson as surveyor. J. B. Schrook, George Kaser, and David Funk also helped to plan the town and lay it out. The first house was not built, however, until l837. David Fate built and lived in the first house, he also became the first justice of the peace. . After several more people had built homes here, small business places started here and there. Soon there was a Cooperage, where Mr. Ridle now has his shop owned by Noah Troyer. A person by the name of Darredinger had a buggy shop where the garage is standing now. There was also at one time a tannery where Lester Flinner's barn is standingg a hotel where they live, owned by Andrew Gable. Ferd Scarr had the first butchershop which stood where W. R. Mastfs barn stands. The first store was in the cellar of the Jaberg house. Later, however, it was moved to the place where the bank is, and still later, where W. R. Mast's old store stood. The first school house, which was a town school builde ing, stood across the road from Leander Wilhelm's house. The school house was not there very long, however, there was another one built behind the house where Mr. and Mrs. John Harris live now. When that school building was no longer good enough, they built a new one where Mr. and Mrs. Jonathan Troyer live. In l909 a two-room building was built on the grounds on which the high school now stands. In l936 the people built a real school, so they said. That is the school we are using now. The first name Walnut Greek ever had was New Garlise. The time came when the people of the town wanted a post office. Before New Garlise could have one, it's name had to be changed because there was also a New Carlise in Clark Township that had a post office. The people of the town got together to decide upon a new name. They reasoned like this: the town is in Walnut Creek Township and the Walnut Greek is so close by, so why not call it Walnut Greek? The people agreed to this name so they were ready for the post office. There was no special building for the post office at first, but they had it in the houses. The first post office Walnut Greek had was a house at the site of Lister Gerberfs home now with Melchair Buzzerd as the first post master. The last church service held in a house was in the year 1862. They then went to the church which stood where Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Troyer used to live. There used to be a cemetery behind the house, but during the Givil War the ll QI 41 1D -
