Thanks for sharing. Here is your html-code:

Why are you reporting this puzzle?

I attended this school from 1940 to 1946,
then the numbers outgrew it and the upper grades 6 to 8-9 transferred to the village hall on Main Street.

Dave: The windows face west so you are right. A big hand bell was used to call pupils into class. In the basement was a sort of rec. room. I remember going hand to hand hanging from the X supports for the floor joists.
Jo: I'll look.
Rob: It was sad to see it in this condition. Not even safe to go inside to take a closer look.
Thanks all.

Alot of light came in through that set of windows. No bell to call the children in to class? Oh I just noticed the little lower windows too. A basement room?

Gladstone

Lots of mixed feelings about this school.
Thanks LAURA.

What memories it holds for you!

Gladstone

Beekay: It is sad to see this school in the rundown condition.
With all the changes in farming and shopping,
the small villages have nearly disappeared.

Beekay

It must pull at the heart string a little to see it in this condition. A few of the old one room schoolhouses here have been restored and used by the historical society. Perhaps there is hope for this one to see the same care?

Gladstone

DBNC: Most of my memories are not the best.
Suzy: We had softball and hockey teams that were competitive.
Jo: I think it is beyond repair.
Anitas: There is no demand for a building of this condition.
I haven't heard lately if it is still there.
Thanks all.

anitas

So sad that something couldn't have been done to save it.

jacki2

The smaller schools really gave kids a true feeling of community. It's wonderful that you had that opportunity to attend a small school, Floyd.

hope you have some happy memories
I hate to see old buildings go bad

Morris, the village is now part of the municipality.
I believe the municipal office is the only
business left in there.

It's a shame that they let it get so bad ....

Gladstone

Ardy: A lot of good memories and some NOT so good.

I can imagine you can still see it as it was. Hope those are good memories. Thanks, Floyd.

Gladstone

It was condemned, not safe to enter and to be torn down.
