The one-room Nicol School building symbolizes the cultural and social importance of education to the pioneers. It represents the 94 one-room rural schools that once graced the landscape in Thomas County.
The one-room country school provided education to the many children living on the prairie. Children from grades one through eighth grade were taught in the same classroom. School consolidation in the 1930s closed many of the country schools in the county.
Located at the Prairie Museum of Art and History Complex.
