In 1964, it was determined that Auxvasse High School could no longer afford the ongoing cost of repairs. Trying to find funding for a new building, they asked many smaller school districts to consolidate into a single district.
At the time, elementary students in Hatton or Williamsburg would attend high school in neighboring districts such as Fulton, Columbia, Mexico, or Montgomery City.
By the end of 1964, both the Hatton and Williamsburg communities determined it would be better for students to attend classes closer to home. They joined with Auxvasse to create the North Callaway R-1 School District.
