The History of Ohlman High School
Ohlman (population 148) is located in south-central Illinois in the northeast portion of Montgomery County.
Illinois Route 16 is the main roadway leading you to and from Ohlman. The Missourri and Pacific Railroad line runs
alongside Route 16 and passes through Ohlman as well. A branch of the South Fork of the Sangamon River flows into town
too. Ohlman is located about 40 miles southeast of Springfield.
Ohlman's history and the history of its school system is need of research. It is probable that Ohlman
had a high school in place by the late 1800s, certainly by the early 1900s. Ohlman High likely served the community
and surrounding farm kids for about 50 years. Our guess is that Ohlman residents closed their high school in the
late 1940s. The students of Ohlman were then sent to nearby Nokomis to further their education.
We do not know the current status of the original Ohlman High School building. Please contact us at
