Franklin County, Idaho, was established in 1913 with Preston as its county seat and
main population center. In the county's early decades, residents constructed a number of
schools organized into several districts. In 1961, however, the county consolidated
these smaller districts into two: East Side School District and West Side School
District. The East Side School District, also referred to as School District No. 201,
serves 280 square miles of eastern Franklin County, including the towns of Preston,
Whitney, and Franklin, Banida, Treasureton, Oneida, Mink Creek, Riverdale, Mapleton,
Nashville, and Fairview.
The East Side Schools collection consists of numerous records from schools and school
districts that became part of the East Side School District, dating from 1900 to 1981.
The first box contains commencement programs from Preston Public Schools, Oneida Stake
Academy, Franklin County LDS Seminary, and Preston High School. Preston High School
tuition clams, faculty meeting minutes, and annual information returns are housed in box
two, while the third box contains results from the Franklin County Trustee elections
held between 1939 and 1976. Finally, boxes four through seven include teacher salary
records, supply ledger invoices, ledgers, and other records from Preston Independent
School District #1. Notable among these materials is a diary of the Preston High School
construction, which contains text and photographs documenting the building's erection in
