At one time there were as many as 440 one-room schoolhouses throughout Dodge County. Lorraine Beal has documented more than one-third of those public school buildings and many of her findings are available online.
Beal has documented about 186 one-room schoolhouses she has located in Dodge County. For some of the structures, she obtained pictures of the buildings, some of the classes and even a few of the teachers. For other schools, she obtained a list of the teachers and even some report cards. All that information is available, through the assistance of Ken Riedl, on the Dodge/Jefferson Counties Genealogical Society website at http://www.dodgejeffgen.com/.
