Located northeast of Ottumwa, this is the third building at this location, beginning with a log cabin in the early 1800s. According to the book, “Iowa’s Country Schools: Landmarks of Learning,” edited by William L. Sherman, “The town of Dahlonega grew up around the school and was once bigger than Ottumwa. Now the only structure remaining in this once thriving community is the school…” Address is 10937 Dahlonega Rd. From US63 NE of Ottumwa, take exit 36 to Dahlonega Rd and proceed north to Angle Rd and turn west into the community. As Angle Rd bends north the school will be on the NW corner.
