    My grandfather and his ancestors all went to a one-room school house.

    The school house exemplifies the concept of “back story.”  While a one room school house is unique in its time and place, the people whose lives changed within those four walls were not.  Their stories turned into our legends, they became our heroes.  Some may see longing in this photograph, I see strength.  I see the stone holding the weight of time and nature squarely upon its back, supporting what we can see in the light and allowing us to proceed safely into the dark.

    Captures the essence of education in rural areas in the late 1800's and early 1900's!
