History
In 1923 the new Martinsburg School was opened, replacing several local one-room schoolhouses. Over the next 20 years, as Jackson Township's population decreased and school buses became more practical, more schools were consolidated into the Martinsburg School. In 1940 the last one-room schoolhouse in the township was closed.
