A brief history of Harmony School was given by Lawrence Admire:
On Feb. 4, 1840, by Miller County Court order, 14 school districts were established, one of them being Harmony No. 10. On Feb. 9, 1910, school districts were renumbered with Harmony No. 43. The school closed after the 1947-48 term and was consolidated with School of the Osage. At that time approximately 30 students were attending classes there. A tax levy of 65c per hundred was levied on the assessed valuation of $43,330 for the 1947 term.

The teacher was paid $160 per month for eight months. Some of the students attended to the janitorial work for $5 per month. At the time the school closed R.R. James was president of the school board and Lyman (Babe) Wood was clerk. Clay Tucker was a past board member. Margie Clark was the last teacher.

A few of the former teachers were: Maude Wright; Ann Heldstab; Mildred Chalmers McMilien; Vera Busick; Pauline Adcock and Emma Blaser Taylor.
