Mitchell Elementary School

Prior to 1870, the Mitchell School was the first Jefferson County school organized in District No. 7. The school first held classes in the Mitchell residence, hence the name. Eventually, a brick school was built three miles to the west and became known by various names: Haines, Ballinger, and Upper Ralston Elementary schools.
