The Ivy Community was named for Sam, Jack and BobI, brothers who moved to Kimble County in 1883. S. H. Ivy deeded two acres of land in 1898 for a school site and a structure was built nearby. In 1917 Ivy donated another tract of land, and a schoolhouse was built that year. The building also served as a community chapel and preachers held services once or twice a month. The building was the site of social gatherings, such as box suppers, and was used as a voting place. Although Ivy School was consolidated with nearby London School in 1939, the chapel continues to serve the area. – Historical Marker Text, Ivy School and Chapel. Marker erected 1996.
