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.
