My friend, Kenneth Evans, is still providing me with absolutely wonderful pieces of Comanche County history. Today, I have a photo of the Martin Branch School #2. The following information comes to us from Evans.
The Martin Branch School #2 was built about 1902. It was located across the road to the west of the Taylor’s Chapel Congregational Methodist Church, 10 miles northwest of the town of Comanche. The school was closed in 1914 when it consolidated with the Soda Springs School, which was first on the Beck place before a modern, three-teacher school was built between the two schools.
