Monticello School Museum and Archives Project.
The Monticello School Museum and Archive will bring into
service the little old red Monticello School House, built about
1890, from the Town of Lakeside, a gift of Walter Erkkila's
family, moved in 2013 to the site of the first Maple School from
1889, located on US Highway 2 at the junction with Highway F.
The site was next to the original Town Hall of Old Brule, built
in 1891. Beneath the school will be constructed a walkout
basement archive facility. The archive will be a climate
controlled workspace and permanent organization base of
operations, housing its historical collection.
