One-room schools were built to serve the families of cowboys, ranches and homesteaders. Classroom furniture was homemade, and wooden boards were painted black for chalkboards. A bucket of water from a well or stream provided drinks for everyone, which caused illnesses to spread rampantly. Schools were used for social gatherings, meetings plays and church services. The Bairfield Schoolhouse was moved from Donely to Armstrong County and operated until 1937.

Monitor Solid Wheel Windmill

Windmills brought water from far below the ground, pumping it into ranks for people and livestock. This particular windmill had a reputation for durability, even when neglected.
