History on a Pinhead

Settler Hardy Flowers was given the honor of having the town named after him. History is scarce, as are population figures. At one time the town had a school which became a district. Five other schools merged with Flower Grove in the 30s and 40s.


Flower Grove School

Photographers' Notes:
"The now closed consolidated school building and gym are located 4 miles west of Flower Grove on SH 137 at FM 2002.

Klondike is in Dawson County about 5-1/2 miles northwest of the school/gym buildings" - Barclay Gibson, July 26, 2015

"This is a picture of the front entrance to the old Flower Grove school. It is located on FM 137 and here is a bit of some history.

A consolidation election was called on April 30 1973 and was approved 103-31 in Flower Grove and 183-32 in Klondike. What killed Flower Grove was the formation of a high school in Grady. The Grady school district started a high school to head off a mandatory consolidation by the State of all school districts without a high school. The Flower Grove school merged with Klondike and the campus was used as an elementary campus for the district. I don't know when it was shut down. The campus is well kept and the gym is still in good condition minus a few broken windows." - October 15, 2013
