*** History of the School ***
What was once called "Bestbury" and now Lyndon was located and granted to some 53 citizens of Rhode Island in 1781. With a population of 59 there was a need of organization and the first town meeting was held on July 4th, 1792 at the Daniel Reniff house which was located one mile from where Squabble Hollow School is now located. The town of Lyndon was divided into districts October 2, 1797. A committee consisting of Daniel Cahoon, Samuel Winslow, Nathaniel Jenks, Nathan Hines, and William W. McGoffey were elected to make the division. Their report which was adopted provided for six districts and gave the names of those living in each district. "Squabble Hollow" was first known as District Number 3, later as No. 8. The districts were reorganized April 12, 1802, and again April 20, 1811 and of course several times later. In 1802 this district contained 42 between the ages of 4 and 18, 41 in 1803 and 54 in 1804. The original inhabitants of District No. 3 were: Thomas Peck, Abel Carpenter, Nathaniel Jenks, Joel Fletcher, Daniel Reniff, Jonathon Pack, Ephraim Hubbard, Levi Lockling, Jeremiah Fisher, James Fisher and Samuel Leach. Among the teachers of early days, but not the earliest were: Arnold Mathewson, Mrs. Nancy Mathewson, Malachi Richardson, Hiram Jenness, John Hoffman, Martha Hubbard, Mrs. George Willey, Joseph Chesley, Mrs. Addie Eastman Chesley, the last of whom is still living and taught in the old school house 62 years ago. (article written in 1981) By 1881 Lyndon's population was over 2300. In 1886 there were 14 school districts and 13 common schools taught by 3 male and 29 female teachers. The average monthly salary was $8.36 with board and $14.10 without board. Lyndon had 483 scholars with 75 in private schools. School tax income was $5,230.75 and expenditures of $4,156.89 reported by Superintendent Hiram Pearl.     MAP

This list is not complete but we hope it will be of interest.
School was comprised of eight years at Squabble Hollow until recently.
The 7th and 8th grades now go to Lyndonville Graded School.
