Clark Kidder brought the first copies of this newly published book to our September 24 Book Talk. Lots of interesting information about the schools – Albion Prairie, Emery, Gravel Store, Lake Drive, Maple Grove, Red Brick. And much of the information came from our Historical Society archives! Who knew there was so much stored in our files? The Albion Graded School is not included as it was a 2-room school for much of its history. A surprising footnote is that the Albion School was mentioned in the very first Albion Town Annual Meeting minutes from April 1846 – “the school near the Horace Bliven farm.” That was 2 years BEFORE WI became a state!
The book is for sale at the Museum. Come on June, July and August Sundays OR call one of the officers.
