Blaze Valley school
Blaze Valley school
In 1888 and 1898 Maranda Botkin sold land on current hwy 192 past current Blaze Valley Rd to the school district 64, to build the school. Evidently, it was later decided to locate the Blaze Valley school about a mile down Blaze Valley Rd next to a fresh water spring.

Maranda Botkin school house transfer deed investigation trace 1888-1984
Maranda Botkin school house transfer deed investigation trace 1888-1984
This is info on part of Botkin farm at Pitman creek that was evidently 1 acre transferred to school district for Blaze Valley School. A historic Pulaski county school book shows two different Blaze Valley School houses: one on Ruth Rd and one on Blaze Valley Rd. The Ruth road one evidently predated the Blaze Valley Rd one. I traced a current day one acre tract thinking it was the location of the Ruth Rd school, but evidently not based on deed trace.
