Unfortunately the Urbana School was torn down. The first school was built in 1884
with 2 rooms and 2 stories and in 1891 an addition of 2 more rooms. The above
school was done in 1910 with a renovation in 1928.
This is the Urbana Basketball Song:
On Urbana, On Urbana bring that ball right down,
First a pass and then a dribble,
Baskets sure are fine. Rah! Rah! Rah!
On Urbana, On Urbana, fight on for her fame,
Fight fellows, Fight! Fight! Fight!
We'll win this game!
