Pringle School, 4985 Battle Creek Road SE, (D)
In 1856 Clark Pringle, son of Virgil Pringle, donated two acres of his family's Donation Land Grant to create one of Salem's first schools. The early school was photographed in 1891. The present structure was built in 1921. Two rooms were added in 1935 and further expansion was possible in 1946 when the Pleasant View School was divided onto two sections and dragged two miles up Boone Road to be attached to Pringle School. (See school in 1956.) In 1987 the school was moved to its new location and this property was bought for a private school.
