The first school in Saunders County, according to several area residents, was a dug-out near the bluff - not too far from Brickyard Hill. Though there probably were not districts at that time, the site of this little lean-to dug out of the bluff is on the present District #11 land, and could be considered the forerunner of today's Platteville School.
