Hamilton Primary School



The roof has been repainted at a cost of $5,350. Necessary maintenance such as painting exterior trim including windows is needed. The front doors are in disrepair also.

If you would like to donate and help preserve this beautiful, historic building, please make check payable to Otter Creek Historical Society, Inc. and mail to 107 E. Main, Otterville, IL 62052.


The above is a picture of the crypt where Dr. Silas Hamilton, George Washington, and Gilbert Douglas are buried.  Nowhere else in the nation is there known to be a master and slave buried side by side. 

The crypt is located just west of the Hamilton Primary School on the Otterville Road.
