The Sparkling Creek schoolhouse, which still stands near Lake Lillian, was opened in 1913 and used for only three years as a school. The first teacher to call Sparkling Creek home was Ms. Winnifred Marples, who taught her own nieces and nephews as well as children from the Engels, Turner and Gauthrie families.
