Whitcomb School

       This picture of the Whitcomb School (Co. Rd. 12-M) was taken in 1919 by Elton Whitcomb, son of Melvin and Katherine Whitcomb.

       The entry way of the School consisted of the coal and wood storage areas, before entering the classroom. These fuel storage areas were also a popular place for students who misbehaved. Even a paddle helped in some cases.

       The old bell in the belfry was used to call the students into the School from outside morning, noon, and recess activities weather permitting.

       The ball diamond was located at the right of the tress and was used daily whenever school was in session. Many other games and competitions were also held about the School. The article, "The One Room School" by Ida Belle Salsbury describes these facilities and the extra curricular activities very well. Those who have had the experience of attending a one room school, continue to cherish the memories of their school days.
