Burden School, #33. Section 10, Township 42 North, Range 5 West. Located about 5 miles north of Potlatch. This was a log school, built in 1880, and named for Levi Burden ¡V who had eleven children and needed the school very much. The school term was divided into summer and winter terms.
In 1903, a new site was given by James and Anna Kilgore, north of the old building and served also as the site of Sunday church services and evening ¡§literaries.¡¨ The new school burned in 1916 and was replaced by a handsome, better-equipped school that served the community through 1939 when students transferred to Potlatch. The teachers from 1911 to 1939 were Edith L. Webster, Stella Smith, Lillie M. Leistner, Myrtle Hammond, Margaret Chapman, Mary Kidwell, Mr. Whitman, Anne Becker, Alva M. Cartwright, Anne Andreanson, Beatrice Buchanan-Ramey, Mildred Davis, Roberta McBride, Artilee Hollada, Maria Thayer, Fern Scott, Rose Murphy, Wilma Nolan, Dorothy Pucket, and Oral Nearing. Teachers before 1911 were Burton L. French, Mattie Green, and Mr. Rule.
