This schoolhouse has been in my family since 1970 and was built in 1929. Before that there was another school on the property. This is where I will share some of that history.
The Greater Harvey Historical Society has written a short piece about all of the old schools in our community including good ol’ number four.
And I’ve found a few old photos in a drawer that give you an idea of what the building was like when it actually operated as a school.
When my grandparents moved in the building had already been converted to a house. Over the years they made many improvements. It would be nice to be able to incorporate many of the original school elements as restoration allows.
