(991) 1899 - Tenth Annual Commencement - Clarksburg School House - Bourbon County - District No. 36 - Program. -Condition: Good Plus This commencement Pamphlet is from the same area as the Pamphlet above. I believe they both come from Bourbon County in Kansas. Two of the Graduates listed in this Commencement Program, Sadie Wright and Dora Wright, are also listed in the Pamphlet from Gwin School (Item 990). The list of graduating students plus the evening program are printed inside of the Commencement Program. In 1871 the coal-mining interests established "B" switch of section 27, township 26, range 25. The town of Clarksburg was established on that site. The name Clarksburg commemorates the maiden name of the wife of one of the early settlers. It was the home of those that worked in the strip bank and at one time had 800 residents. The 1891-92 directory of Fort Scott and Bourbon county gives Clarksburg a list of thirty-one male residents of voting age. The town was never platted and has since been turned into farmland. It is considered a lost town of Bourbon County. It has been folded once in half, with a very small tear at the edge of the fold. The Program measures 5" by 8" when closed. Sold
