Old school house
This is the old school house where Rose and I (along with my other siblings) went to grade school. I believe that Rose was the last class to go there. There were 2 grades in each room with outhouses down the hill. They did not serve any lunches so you had to either take your lunch or order from a little restaurant that was across the highway that ran in front of the school. The rooms were heated with a stove where you burned either wood or coal. Of course there was no AC and I can't remember ever thinking anything about it being hot. Of course back then we always started to school after Labor Day and got out in early May. We sure didn't get all the breaks they get now. I can remember getting off at Christmas and that's about it.
