Dieters School - looking for information.

Dieters School is at the corner of Wilkins-Fortman Rd. and Schmitmeyer-Baker Rd. in Section 30 of McLean Twp. It was built in 1890 and closed in 1928 when it was annexed into Minster School District. Because the school was located in Shelby County and Minster is in Auglaize County both counties had to agree. The action added 35 students and $400,000 to Minster's tax base. The building was sold for $387 to East Side Country Club and is now a house. If you know anything about the school, have any class photos or old photos of the building or know who any of the teachers were call 419-628-2481 or the email address at the top of this blog.
