Article form the Spring Grove Herald January 7, 1937
The Spring Grove school system is five years older than the Minnesota Education Association. At a special meeting of the Commissioner’s Court of Houston County held on June 4, 1855, School District, then known as Number 10 was organized. For two years, classes were conducted in the various homes, but in 1857 the pioneers of this locality decided to build a schoolhouse. This building was replaced in 1872 to accommodate the increasing population. Two one-story additions were made to this structure.
From an 1899 issue of the Spring Grove Herald
Bids for the new schoolhouse were opened last Monday. The work will commence as soon as school closes and the old building can be remove, which will be about the middle of May. The heating apparatus is expected to cost $800, while plans and specifications cost about $150. It will then be seen that the building complete with hot air furnaces will cost within the estimated $10,000, which must be considered very satisfactory especially in view of the great advance that has taken place in the cost of building material. Ingvald Mulller of this place has been awarded the contract for furnishing 175,000 bricks to be used in the construction of the new school This is quite a compliment to the Spring Grove brickyards.
