Mrs. O’Neill continues to make Green Hills School a better place each and every day!
In 1902 Green Township had 4 schools ---Huntsburg, Huntsville,Tranquility, and Greensville. The first school in Green Township appears to have been one located just northwest of Huntsville in 1790. The first official school was built in Huntsville in 1835 and replaced with a new building in 1865. However, this school was built on land for which the D.L. & W. railroad had a right of way. Since the railroad was running over the existing school, they agreed to build a new one.
