The first seven or eight pioneer families, about whom we have already written, realized that there were two elements which are very important to the life and endurance of any enterprise. They are religious worship and education. To carry out these major projects, a school house was built about one half mile east and about one mile north of the present location. Here began the education of the pioneer children. It was here that these seven families met for worship. Realizing the need for a better place of worship they decided to take up a collection for the building of a church. Not wanting to go in debt for the building they spent only what they had collected. The church and school, as in the beginning of Wann' s story, are still the mainstays of the town and community.
