History of Caldwell and Livingston Counties, Missouri (1886), page 644:

"The public school building of Breckinridge. . . .was built in 1872 on a hill at the south end of Fourth Street. The building is of brick, two stories high, with a cut-stone basement, window caps and sills, the whole surmounted with a slate and tin roof of the Mansard style. There are four large school rooms, with a seating capacity of sixty pupils each. . . .the whole warmed by two of Kaser's hot-air furnaces in the basement. Dr. Montgomery Bottom has long been president of the Breckinridge school board, and to him much of the value of the school is due."
