History of Elder Grove

Elder Grove was created as a district in 1885.  We believe it to be the longest continuous running school district in the state of Montana. We still use the original

school house that was built in 1900 out of chicken wire and hay bales. We still ring the original school bell when we want to celebrate something. It is a nice way for us to connect the past with the present!

We are hoping to create a timeline of our school in the future. As you can imagine, this is a time consuming process. We have 138+ years of information to comb through. If you would like to help with this project please let Carol Phillips, District Technology Director, know. She can be reached at 406-656-2893x4.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

In the meantime please feel free to take a look at some of the photos we have loaded in the Elder Grove History Gallery. Who knows, you might see a family member or friend in their younger days! We will be adding more photos as time permits so don't forget to stop by again later.
