|The History of Ingraham High School
Ingraham (population approximately 150) is located in southeastern Illinois in the northeastern portion of Clay County. The village sits on the intersection of County Highway 16 and County Highway 4. Ingraham is about 24 miles southeast of Effingham. The city is named after a prominent family who lived in the area in the middle to late 1800s.
We are in need of more research for the town of Ingraham and its school system. We believe the folks of the area established a school in the middle 1800s. We further believe that a two or three-year high school was initiated by the early 1920s. It is likely that Ingraham High School joined a consolidation effort with Sailor Springs and Clay City in the late 1940s. All students who reside in Ingraham attend school in Clay City today.
