This is one of the most rural Main Streets I have seen lately. With a population of 57 in Burr, I can see why the old school closed. The original settlers of the town (which was named after the burr oak trees in the area) were German immigrants, and many of the current residents have German last names. Even during Burr’s boom time in the 1920s, the population never went over 133, so I am wondering when this school actually closed. What we do know is that the school was converted into a home in 1995.
The c.1935 brick building backs up to farmland and is opposite a white country church. The property has a pending contract, but backup offers are still being accepted.
