As soon as possible the  settlers of Carroll County started  to  make arrangements for the preaching of the gospel and the education of their children.  The building of  the school was usually a structure made out of rough logs  with one small window.  This building would quite possibly  serve a dual purpose for the community. One for their religious services and another as  their schoolhouse.   

Following is a brief listing of the early schools and teachers of the area. If you have any information on these or any other schools of Carroll County please contact me. I would like to include the information on these pages



This school was located in Sandwich,NH
The "District 12" School



It appears from the town records that in 1793 the first schoolhouse was erected
and it was located near the Daniel BREWSTER farm.
