Milaca Public Schools

The first two pictures are Normal School classes from 1901 and 1915.  Milaca Normal school trained country school teachers up to 1935.  Women and men, 18-19 years old, were trained in a year long course. Local school boards hired them as needed.  After the Depression and WWII the teachers were trained at Teacher's Colleges like the one in St Cloud.
 
The next set of pictures tell the history of the Milaca Public School building from 1901 to 1955, including the 1915 fire which destroyed the school building.  Students were scattered throughout the community until a new building was built.  The 1910 Bird's Eye view of Milaca includes the Milaca Public School building.

The third set includes Milaca High School teams:
1904 and 1914 girls' basketball,
1908 Girls Glee Club, 
1907 boys football and 1910 boys' baseball teams, and the 1966 Milaca High School Marching Band.
