Wyatt Cemetery and Hill School

Hill School was located 4 miles south, 1 west of Gotebo on the Edward Hill land. It was a one room school from 1907 to 1939. The school was the site of the community activities, such as spelling and ciphering matches, standing room only at the box suppers and Christmas programs. Heat was furnished by the big black stove in the middle of the room, and kerosene lamps provided the light. The thriving community dwindled away when the school was closed. Nearby, on a plot of land donated by Buren Wyatt from a corner of his homestead, was the cemetery.
