The first hot lunches were prepared in a building across the road. In 1939 the Board of Education closed the Pleasant Hill School (northeast of Marlinton) and moved that building to Dunmore for use as a kitchen and lunch room.\r\n\r\nTeachers through the years included: Georgia Curry, Mr. Hull, Verdie Mann, A. B. Hoke, Elva Wilson, Isabel Pritchard, Mack Brooks, Bonnie Brooks, Clark McCutcheon, Grace Arbogast, Kermit Arbogast, Lucille Moomau, Bertie Beard, Mamie White, Opal Cottle, Lolla Gray Grimes, Edmonia Gibson, Glen Tracy, Jean Pritchard, Lynn Kerr, Helen Buckley, Rosalie Minger, Mrs. Harold Mosser, Macel Harris, Fannie Kane and Blanche Patterson.\r\n\r\nThe Dunmore Grade School was closed in 1960 and the property was bought by a community organization. It is now the home of the Dunmore Community Center and continues to serve the community as it has for more than 100 years.
