Muddig School ( also called Pecan )
( now a residence) 

On September 2, 1887 Mark Thornton and wife Susan deeded to H. P. Erwin, F. M. Dyer, and J. S. Clower (acting as trustees for Pecan School ) one acre of land out of the Samuel Vollas Survey to be used as a school building site. This school, which came to be known as Muddig, existed until 1946 when it consolidated with Commerce School.

This picture is of the old Muddig School that was moved and renovated into a home now located on Hwy. 34 near the Sulphur River.
