The History Mystery #58

A School, A House, A Home —

This is the photo of the first house that Grover and Dorothy Whitener bought. The building was located along the South Fork of Willow Creek just east of the town of North Fork, and was formerly a schoolhouse before it became a residence.

The Mystery — What was the name of that school?

Followup on the History Mystery #57:

E Clampus Vitus 41-49 wants to thank those who responded to our History Mystery on the real location of the Zebra Mine. We are in contact with a lady who grew up on the property where the mine is located and she will eventually show us that location.

Unfortunately, she has had a medical issue and this will have to wait until she is back on her feet again. According to her, the spot that we thought may have been an air shaft to the Zebra is actually another long forgotten mine. The interesting thing is why two mining maps show the location of the Zebra Mine to be out in the O’Neals area – that’s another History Mystery begging to be answered.
