Highland Township Country School

We just happened across this old country school in Highland Township, Hettinger County. It’s just west of the Neuberg Congregational Church, about thirty miles southeast of Dickinson.

Terry and I both thought this school had a remarkable number of window panes still unbroken. In most cases a place like this would have had its windows boarded-up long ago, but this place just been here like this for who knows how long, a window pane or two surrendering to the elements every few seasons.

  1. And the window panes that are broken could just as easily been the work of hail from years of severe thunderstorms known to roll across the plains rather than of uncivilized barbarians.


  2. Sometimes glass window panes just fall out when the putty used to hold them in gives out. Occasionally birds peck at the edges of the windows as well. Rain, wind,hail temperature change, humidity and actions by humans, animals and other factors may be involved in their destruction.
