Various thoughts and travels
Just sitting there....
This is one school where I think if you lived 10 miles away, you could see it all the way while you walked. Or drove your carriage.
Wonder how far the students had to travel to get to the school. If they were like my dad, I suspect they didn't go when there was work on the farm to be done. He graduated grade 8 but that was as far as he was allowed to go because he was the only son and needed on the farm.
