Glassford schoolhouse is mentioned in The Carthage Press, February 14, 1895.
Article states that it is located 1/2 mile west of the Jasper County Poor Farm. The
Poor Farm site is currently the Carthage YMCA.
Glassford school may have combined with Prairie View school in later years. Sometimes
when schools combined patrons would still refer to them by their former name. If anyone
has more history on Glassford or Prairie View please send it to me.
