The brand new Crestline School of District 28 was officially dedicated on October 14, 1921. The cornerstone was laid months before by the Board consisting of C.W. Edmonds, J.G. Milner, and R.H. Settle on May 6, 1921. Mrs. Hattie Moore Mitchell delivered the principal address at the dedication ceremony and a short program was given. Staff of the school in its first few years was Miss Jewell Alleger as principal and Miss Edith Tedlock as the primary teacher. It was one of the nicest schools in the area at the time, built of brick with two separate rooms separated by double doors pushed back to make one long room for meetings.

As of April 2023 the Crestline School was demolished, our photographers had anticipated this after spotting the removal of the cornerstone from the right side of the building. This is never a good sign, accompanied by what seemed to be salvaging of materials from inside. Sure enough within a week, bulldozers were on site knocking down the bricks.

This school building was torn down yesterday, actually. I pass it every day going to work. Yesterday it was being torn down and today it is just a pile.
