||ILASCO, MO - This is the Marble Creek
School, an elementary school , that existed from 1904 to 1944. The
school was located on the south edge of Ilasco on the main county road and
consisted of two large rooms separated by a long hallway/cloakroom.
Physically it was a very modern school with central heating (very unusual
at the time), a coal fired furnace, and playground equipment as well as
the more common pump for water and outhouses. With the influx
of immigrant workers increasing the school age population, Marble Creek
School soon became overcrowded. This overcrowding was not alleviated
until the Ilasco Grade School was built in 1914.
