Monaville Consolidated Rally
Teachers and students at the Monaville Consolidation Rally. The building on the right is the Monaville School. The Monaville School District once included the Aurora School, Sunnyside School, and the Monaville School. There were 155 schools in 52 districts in the Waller County school system in 1892. Monaville District #13 consisted of Monaville, Aurora, and Bracy Island. Monaville was considered an elementary school during this period. As the school districts changed to comply with new state laws, many families disagreed with the divisions. During 1930, Ora Lee Kilgore Edwards, Dick Kilgore, Laura Burton, and T. W. Morris deeded four and one-half acres to Monaville. This land was adjacent to the original one-acre deeded in 1904 by William Wright. A new building was built and Monaville was classified as a three-year high school in 1931. The Monaville School now had 11 grades. The girl on the left is Eva Willis, the small girls are the Dodd twins, and the young lady in the back is a teacher. Identification was by Minnie Bell, a classmate.
