Established in 1881, the Glover School served residents of the rural Glover Community. Under the direction of teacher James Breeze, a one-room schoolhouse was built on A.E. Sloan's land, now the site of the Old Glover Cemetery. A consolidated school district was formed in 1836 and the third schoolhouse was built at this site soon after. Destroyed by fire in 1938, it was rebuilt the next year. The school merged with the Kennard District in 1967, but community identity and pride provided by the early school are reflected in biennial reunions of ex-students and teachers.
