Students & Teachers - Union Township School 4 - Lizton A Virtual Cemetery created by: David Smith
Description: One of Union Township's nine one room schools, School 4 was located in Lizton. The 1878 map of Lizton shows School 4 was located north of the first log school house. It stood approximately where the Methodist Church is located today. These schools offered instruction through the eighth grade to the children living on the nearby farms. The first six of these schools were built around 1855. The township schools operated into the early 1900's when they were closed with the students attending a consolidated school in Lizton. Many students only achieved an eighth grade education until the Lizton High School, started in 1896, produced its first graduates in 1899.
