ADENA LOCAL - Ohio School District

About School District: Our mission is to provide all students with the knowledge and skills to reach their potential and to become productive citizens. In September of 2001 the Adena School District started school in its brand new K-12 building that covers 190,210 square feet and cost around $24 million. However, school has not always been in a flashy, brand new, air conditioned building in Frankfort. When John McNeill plotted the village of Frankfort, in 1816, there was a section set aside for a school building, which was built around 1820. A log school-house was built and Massie Mickey was the first teacher. Today, this building would have been close to the corner of Springfield and Starr Avenue. The school was large enough for about 40 pupils. One end of the building was a fireplace and at opposite sides at this end were two doors. On the west side of Westfall Road, where the Frankfort Water Plant stand today was an early school for the black children. When the railroad was built through frankfort, the frame school was moved to the foot of Sanford Hill. School was discontinued and the building was moved to its present location, two houses south of the Presbyterian Church. It is used today as a private residence. In 1850, the Frankfort Union Seminary was organized to promote higher education. It was built where the J.B. Mallow home now stands. The lower floor had a large single room and the upper floor had two rooms. Students came from all around to pay the $3-$11 tuition (depending on your course of study) to take one of the following courses; Arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, surveying, grammar, Latin, Greek, geography, philosophy, chemistry, botany, uranography, astronomy, Watts on the mind, rhetoric, and music. Other schools during the 1900s include Young School (located at State Rt. 138 and Greenlee Road), Bray's Hill School (County Road 550 today) and Fisher School.
