Wisconsin’s Old-Time Schoolhouses

Sunny Slope School   

Sunny Slope School, District #2, is in the town of Summit, Langlade County. It was built in 1917, the third Sunny Slope School. 


The first, shown here courtesy of The Antigo, Wisconsin Genealogy Gopher, was a large structure with a rough pine lumber floor, 16 x 24 ft. It opened in 1889. The second was also a log structure, built in 1898, a bit larger with an area of 22 x 32 ft.


The third school was converted into a residence in 2006. The Antigo, Wisconsin Genealogy Gopher says, “ It received its name from the picturesque slope on which the district school is located.” It was considered to be a “modern Building.”
