Maysville High School reunion this weekend
Updated 8:57 PM, Thursday, September 29, 2016

A reunion of students of the former Maysville High School will take place Saturday, October 1, at noon at Ryan's Steakhouse at Banks Crossing. Organizers say this may be the last reunion of MHS since many former students have passed on and attendance is poor.

Maysville operated its own independent city school system from the formation of the town until MHS burned on July 28, 1953. The fire was ruled arson. The gymnasium was then subdivided into classrooms until a new school could be built.

The new Maysville Elementary School opened on its present site in September 1956 after the Jackson County Board of Education agreed to buy land and build a school in Maysville. The Maysville City School System was then dissolved.
