- Dungeness School
- The idea for the Dungeness School was formed in 1892 by the settlers of the Dungeness area. On May 10, 1892 a meeting was held in which settlers created a bond for land and a two story school house. The school house opened on February 27, 1893. The school originally had 73 students from the ages of 5 to 20. The school had one teacher which lived on the second floor of the school. Classes were large and books and supplies not easy to get. School Board minutes of April 8, 1895, show a motion was passed to buy the school a bottle of ink. (read more...)
