District No. 1 School House

Pioneers traveling on the Mormon Trail settled in eastern Buffalo County. They organized the country's first school district and, in 1871, built this school. It was the first frame school house to be completed in the county.

District 1 was located one mile west of Shelton, Nebraska.
