LAKE VIEW SCHOOL
District No. 5
From 1848 to 1858 children were taught in a log structure owned by the Sanford family. A regular schoolhouse was built in 1858. The new school was named for the eastward view to Lake Waubesa. It was built next to the Gett's Inn, a popular stage coach stop.
The marker is located on southbound County Highway MM, just north of its T-intersection with County Highway B, in the 2200 block of County Highway MM, Fitchburg, Wisconsin 53575.
NOTE: The marker may be hidden in bushes and shrubs (see photos below). There is no schoolhouse at this location, so it is extremely easy to miss this small marker.
How I found the marker, buried in brush.
