Celebrating Our Past: Green County Historical Society
37616a.jpg
This photo of an unknown rural school was taken by Frautschy of Monticello and reminds us of how much education and society have changed in the last century. At that time, about 120 one-room schools dotted the countryside of Green County. Each school had its own school board and hired one teacher each term to teach all of the subjects to all eight grades in the school. The Green County Historical Society collects copies of photos of the groups of students at each of the rural schools in the county so that they can be stored in one repository and have as many students as possible identified. The society also collects clerks, treasurers, and teachers record books from these rural schools. If you can identify the school in this photo or any of the people in it, or have any photos or records that you can share, please contact Matt Figi at 608-325-6503 or mfigi48@tds.net.
