Shields

Shields is an unincorporated community in Grant County, North Dakota

Shields School History

The first school for Shields children was in the sod home of Hannah Karlson, northeast of Shields in the bend of the river. The first public school house was built of sod and located about one-half mile south of the present site of Shields. In 1912 the community passed a bond issue and built the school house that still sets in Shields today. There were 42 pupils in 1912 of which 19 were in the first grade. In 1922 this school house became too small so the first three grades were taught in the Congregational Church basement. After 57 years the school building was closed and sold and became a store, Post Office, and coffee shop. Shields children were then bused to the Flasher School. (The source for this information lists names of some of the school children).
