"In 1874, the members of Spicewood Meeting, feeling an interest in the cause of public education, erected a high school, at an expense of $1,400, to which they gave the name of 'Spicewood School.'   S. W. Cook, Jesse Mills and Paris Cox were the Trustees.  It was conducted as a private institution until 1878, when it was purchased by the Township Trustee, J. B Bradfield.  The school is now sustained by the public money of the township, with the addition of a guarantee fund, made up by those interested in educational matters.  Prof. John Pennington is the Principal for the ensuing term."  S1 page 104, Col. 2 - Doc4604.pdf
The Church, School and Dormitories were torn down about 1915-1917 - S4,
