  • Harding County :: Abbott & Newton
    brothers with the last name of Newton organized the schools The schools were set up to educate students in the Abbott area The school had three different locations The drought in the 1930 s forced many people to leave the area The school remained open from 1943 1956 serving grades 1 6 In the fall of 1956 the school closed and students began attending Farley schools Today only a couple of houses remain in the area The reason you won t find Newton on the map is because there was never a post office there we got our mail from the Abbott Post Office If you have a copy of Schools in Colfax County by Bill Litrell you will find it to be very interesting and informational Another great book is Ghost Town Basketball by Steve Flores where we got some of our information The Newton school was located one mile west and one and one half miles south of the intersection of Highways 39 and the Clayton Springer highway The old schoolhouse is now located on the north side of the highway at Abbott At one time Abbott School had an enrollment of 81 and a faculty of six Newton sent two teams to state competition one in 1928 and one in 1933 Contributed by Tom Wesson I did attend the Newton School after it was moved to the present location I knew it was called Newton School although I always thought of it as the Abbott School I believe it was always a part of Colfax County I took some notes during past family conversations about the Newton School that might be interesting to someone The first Newton school was on the homestead land of Samuel Newton The Newton families of two brothers Samuel and John Erwin J
