one room schools

The one room schools have all but disappeared from the landscape of the county, but today I discovered some slides of these wonderful old places of learning.

Top on my list are these pictures of John Marshall school.  It was located on County V in the Town of Fond du Lac, and this is the school where my dad and all his siblings got their education.
I have looked for a picture of this school for years!!!

Another school picture I found today, was the Nels Anderson School.  This was in section 2, Township of Byron.

The following two pictures were just labeled "Estabrooks School"

Finally, the picture of this small building was labeled as being the school near Empire Cemetery. Not sure what it's name would be, but it is probably Hill Crest School.

pictures to remember

Sometimes when sorting through and adding photos to the collection of the Historical society, you can't help but remember something unusual about a photo, even when there are no names of the person being photographed.

This unusual plaid dress can't soon be forgotten.

And who will ever forget the long hair on these two girls.

Now, after enjoying these pictures, sit down right now and start to label your own photo collection!
