The school house was very close to the family farm.  It was demolished many years ago.

  1. I remember it when it was falling down. It was kind of spooky to a little kid. I didn’t go in it. I remember Dad telling a story that on his first day of school there he didn’t like it and walked home after a couple of hours. He was not well received at home!
