    Dana's first school was a 3-room building erected by the Township in 1875 at a cost of $2,200, and over the door bore the inscription "Keep Out of Debt." It burned in 1892 and the north end of the building was erected to form the first high school in Helt Township. The south side of the building was erected in 1925, and in 1961 the school was closed by consolidation.
