A little bit of family history and a school marker

On a recent trip to Drayton Valley, AB (August 29, 2015 to be exact) I found out that markers for one room schoolhouses are relatively recent here. My father came from a family of six children, three boys, three girls. He was the youngest. His brothers were followed by three girls. His brothers attended this school. At one time his brother's son owned the land that this school once occupied.

  1. How cool is that? Maybe some family members have a picture of the school tucked away in an old photograph album. My brother and I went to the same grammar school that my father did. We even had four of his teachers!
