Temperance Hall was a small school located about two miles northeast of Looxahoma. This school was used for all public activities as dances, picnics, etc.
Some of the teachers were Miss. Matt Johnson, Eli Oliphant, and Ann Johnson. Patrons were Elkana Echols, Matt Johnson, Henry Cox, Sam Cox, M L Cathey, T D Cathey, and Rufus Garrott.
Students were Jim Welborn, Billy Cathey, Haley, Mary Liza Cathey, Jim Henry Cathey, Sally Cathey, John Campbell, Will Campbell, Cave Johnson, Roberson Johnson, Jake Johnson, Clayton Johnson, Josie Johnson, Jennie Johnson, and Liza Johnson.
The building was a crudely built two story structure which was built before the Civil war. For several years after the war it was still in existance but it was finally consolidated with a larger school at Looxahoma. Some of the students who lived nearer other schools attended the one they chose.
