This one inch square picture was of the Thermal School in the 1880's. It was located about one mile south of Auberry Road on Millerton Road, about three miles north of Sentinel. The speculator town of Thermal died about 1890 and the school building was dragged by teams to the site of today's Table Mountain Casino and became Millerton School. The Fleming family of Auberry Road and Little Dry Creek moved and set it up.

circa: 1888

Millerton School taken by a Fresno County Library photographer. This picture so resembles Pleasant Vale School below Tollhouse that the photographer mixed them up. This school and Pleasant Vale is what the Eastern Fresno County Historical Society building at Sierra High School is patterned after. Pincushion Mountain is in the background and today's casino would be on the right. Note the two outhouses behind the school.

circa: 1921

Two of the Fleming brothers on the porch of Millerton School. Note their bicycles on and in front of the porch. The Flemings took pride in fixing up the school. Millerton merged with several other small schools, (Auberry Valley, Big Sandy, and Lerona) to form the Auberry Union Elementary School in the late 1930's. The building has disappeared and no sign of it remains.
