Sherman Township Schoolhouse

1909 Riley County Map
Minnie’s one-room school house is circled in Sherman Township just below the "A" in Sherman. The approximate location of present-day Tuttle Creek Dam is hand-drawn on the map.

This 1909 map of Riley County shows Minnie’s school (circled) at the south-east corner of Section 15. Minnie boarded with Mr. & Mrs. Parkerson whose farmhouse is shown southwest of the school. Garrison Crossing (located upper right) was the nearest train station to where Minnie was lodging in Sherman Township.
