Quebec School was built in 1865 by Henry Marcy. It then stood about three-fourths of a mile northeast of its present site on Elijah Carver’s land. It was then called Brush College until named by Rev. Shunk who preached here when it was first built. He gave it the name of Quebec because it stood on a hill and had only one path leading to it as did the city of Quebec.

In 1869 it was moved to where it now stands. The first directors were: J. D. Mathew, J. R. Miles and Jessie Crews, Sr.

Mr. Jessie Crews was the father of T. M. Crews who still resides in the district and served as director of the school for fifteen years. The desk which he made is still in use at the school.

Among the teachers we find the following have presided over Quebec School: Carrie Case, Gertrude Ray, Olive Fielder, Belle Smith, Amelia Miles, Marguerite Irvine, Della Dearing, Ida F. Black, I. O. Fox, Mauve Alcorn, now Mrs. Jeff Wilson, Mame Wyatt, now Mrs. Henry Jacobs and Katherine Dace.

Miss Helen Looker will teach her fourth year at this place where she has met with excellent success.
