Former Historic School in Cloverland Torn Down

CLOVERLAND, Wis. – An old school that has been a historical landmark in Douglas county has been torn down after sitting vacant for 20 years.

The former King School in the town of Cloverland served as a place for learning in the early 1900s.

When the school later shut its doors in 1948, the structure became a social space for the Cloverland Community Club.

The building was decaying and also became a hotspot for vandalism.

“We really wished we could have saved the building but it was just too far beyond repair,” said Brenda Martin, a club member.

Members of the community club are planning to build a new park that will commemorate the former historical landmark.
