Trafton School
Posted August 13, 2010, by K. A. Erickson

This school building faces an uncertain future. After serving since 1888 as the oldest continuously running rural school in the state the Arlington District voted this year, 2010, to close Trafton to save money. Plans floated include tearing the building down and/or selling the property. Who needs schools anyways when you have the Innerben (Internet) right?
