Bennetville School

The Bennetville School was built in 1918. This building was also the first home of the Mansford Grange #710 and was where they held their elections to organize on September 25, 1919. After the school districts merged in the 1930s and the kids were bussed to Darrington, the old school was used as a community building, Sunday school and held dances there. In 1940 Bennetville School burned to the ground.
