    Cave Creek School

    Photographer's Note
    "Located 10 miles east of Fredericksburg on Cave Creek Road. Very neat little country schoolhouse very much used by the community today. A covered pavilion is adjacent and modern conveniences have been built. The photos pretty much tell the story.
    Bio sheet has information about history." - Will Beauchamp, March 21, 2011

    "In 1865, John Ebert deeded eight acres for a school. Organized in 1870, the school was named Cave Creek for a nearby creek which had some natural caves. The one-room school was finished in 1881 just in time for school in September."
