King School House - Madison County, Indiana

This undated article regarding one room school houses in Madison County, Indiana features a picture of the King school house, which was located at the corner of 350 W and 900 N.  I do not have the date of this article, nor information about what publication it was from.

Sadly, I don't know anything about this school house either.  There were King relatives who lived in this area, and I wonder if the school was named for them.  Most likely candidate would be George Washington King (1823-1892).  On my next visit to the Madison County Historical Society I will try to see what records I can locate.

If any readers know anything about this school, please let me know.

I am getting blocked by Google, but this pic, King School house, Madison County IN is known to me and my 95 y/o mother. Her mother, Floy King (then Little) was born next door on the family farm. George Washington King is correct for landownwer. If this site is still alive I can be reached at

Somewhere I have photos taken in the early 1970's. Not digitized. I do not recall a bell tower when I saw it.
