The schoolhouse was a log cabin that the builder had intended to use for a private residence. Miss Anna Sheriff, the first teacher, had six pupils during that first term. By 1882 a new school building was under construction but was not to be ready for several months. Until the completion of this building, a second floor room in the Ben Spencer hotel was used. The at- tendance had grown and this room was provided with fifty seats for the pupils expected: however, many more pupils came than had been provided for. In fact, before December of that year, one hundred pupils were enrolled. A young graduate of the University of Wisconsin, Byron Oakley, came to Antigo in 1882, looking for a place to open a law office. Instead, he became principal of the school, and when the new building was ready for use, Mr. Oakley graded the school. The new building, which was located where the public library now stands. was a "modem" frame structure of that time. It consisted of four rooms, on two doors, and basement equipment with a furnace. The enrollment continued to grow and before the end of the year seventy-three students were in one of the rooms and the others were also overcrowded, Mr. C. O. Marsh, also a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, was the next principal and super- intendent of schools. In September, 1883, when Mr. Marsh came, the high school department was added with a registration of forty-one students. A new wooden building was erected in the second The Junior-Senior high school system was established in 1929. Page Four

Typical of the natural beauty in which Amigo is placed the game Sim 35 the present One, The Sire was presented to the city of Antigo for educational purposes by the Honorable H. F. Deleglise. The block was covered with a thick growth of trees at the time and a few of those trees are still standing. Between 1890 and 1902 our lirst high school paper, "The Mercury," was published. During those years also, Latin and German were added to me curriculum. ln the summer of 1902 the build- ing was improved by the addition of several class rooms and the enlargement of the main room. ln the year 1905-1906 our school was placed on the approved list or the North Central Association of Universities, which meant that graduates of this school could enter any one of several colleges and universities without taking entrance examinations. This fact was something to be proud of in those days when camparatively few high schools in Wisconsin were so approved. Between 1897 and 1906 live wooden school buildings were erected in addition to the high school building. The first frame school building was moved to the fourth ward to make room for the public library. The need for a new building and especially a new gymnasium, was felt for some time before the old high school building burned. The building was destroyed by fire on the bitterly cold morning of January 6, 1916. Many valuable school records and trophies were burned, most of which could not be replaced. Antigo is an abbreviation of "Nequeantigo," meaning "green balsam river." Page Six
