Agency History

The Yellow Creek School was built on the SE 17-80-6-W6 on land donated by the Stefan Badiuk family. A teacherage was also on site. In 1959 the school was closed, the land returned to the Badiuk family and the school building sold to Walter and Vera Grela who moved it to their farm. This farm later became the Dobish farm.
