We took the time last weekend to do some searching for some of the other school sites in the area. When country schools were the norm, they had to be within walking distance (you know, 5 miles, up-hill, both ways). The historical societies have done a great job in this state of marking the old schools. Here are a few we found just a half an hour from our Bass Lake.
What they all had in common was that they weren’t there anymore. There are others that have been restored as homes, churches, lumber yards and storage garages, but seeing these three not be there reinforced for us how important it is for us to save the one we have. We are so lucky to get the opportunity.
