Vintage Photo: Sylamore Schoolhouse

The Sylamore Schoolhouse is unique among all the schools built in Izard County being built of brick. It was a two room schoolhouse and appears in this photo to have had its own water tower or a bell tower. According to The Early Schools of Izard County, The school was built sometime after the railroad was completed in 1903 and held classes until consolidating with Melbourne in 1948.
