'Old' Central School Photo from 1914-15
A Central School class photo from 1914-1915, probably the second grade.
John's mother, Erna Rowe [Hopkins], is second from the left on the front
row. Can anyone identify anyone else? No one looks very happy in this
shot, possibly having something to do with there still being snow on the
ground with the pupils not wearing their coats.
This was the 'old' Central School, built in 1867 as the first public
school in Boonville. This building was expanded in 1870 and 1896,
eventually becoming the elementary school when Laura Speed Elliott was
completed in 1915. The old Central School burned two days after Christmas
in 1937; the present Central School was built on the same location.
