Frank Hughes College was established in memory of a young boy who was killed in a hunting accident in 1904. The school began as a grade school, secondary school, and a college, all in one facility. By 1909, there were students from several states attending the college and boarding at private homes in the town. The college portion was phased out in the late 1920s after steamboat travel began to change to automobiles. The original building was demolished in 1976.
In the 1986, the girls basketball team had a 35-3 win/loss record and won the class A State championship.
