Submitted by Terry Gaskill


In preparation to publish a book on Whiteside County country schools, information is being sought on a number of former schools located in Tampico Township.  The list includes: Cain, Aldrich, Glassburn, Highland, Lyons, Maple Hill, Olson, Ross, South Eastern Union, Sunnyside, and West Tampico.


After consolidation many of the schools were used by the Amish community. Any type of historical information such as attendance records, teachers, students, and photos would be appreciated. Please contact Della Boehmke at 815-537-5626.
