School District 36

Address: Lamb

Organized in 1886. The original schoolhouse was a log building constructed in 1886 atop a high promontory about 5 miles south of Critchell. This was destroyed by fire in 1887, and replaced by a second log building constructed in the same location. The Lamb school was named for the Lamb family who operated a nearby post office. Della Dudley was the district's first teacher, beginning on January 3, 1887. The second school building still exists today. The district had a population of 22 students in 1887.
