A nice history of White Hall High School was provided to us by Reta Borg in the form
of two articles. One article was prepared by Dennis Drake (WHHS Class of 1962) for the 2007 White Hall
HS alumni banquet. The second article is from 1927 and is titled "The Manual of General Information and
Course of Study" for White Hall High School and Grade School. A summary of the information found in both articles
is as follows:
The first school was established in White Hall in 1835. This school served the community through 1868.
At that time a new school building was constructed to accomodate the increasing student enrollment. The building
was completed in 1869 with additions to the building constructed in 1889 and 1901. As this building grew older, and
the student population began to swell, the need for a new building was addressed. In 1922 a modern brick building
was constructed and served the White Hall High School district through its merger into the North Greene School District in
The first graduating class at White Hall High School was the class 1877. At that time White Hall
High School offered a three year course of study. The school began offering a fourth year of high school studies
in 1899. Enrollment steadily increased from 1877 (17 students) through 1928 (217 students). The school was
well thought of in the area as in 1927 the school accepted 72 students from outside of the school district boundries.
White Hall High School continued on a solo basis through the early 1960s. It was then that the towns
of Roodhouse and White Hall began school consolidation talks. This effort became a reality in fall of 1963 with the creation
of the North Greene School District.
North Greene High School is located in White Hall. The original White Hall High School building has
been torn down. A new school building was built in its place..
