1910 Lone Tree School, Wheatland township, Bureau County, Illinois

Mary Stephens - Teacher

Directors:  Fannie Anderson, Ada Downey, Pat Finnegan (absent)

There were three school directors who hired teachers and looked after all school affairs.  The picture was taken in October 1910 on the front porch of the school building.  At that time the porch was made of rough planks, and was that way until about 1923.  The planks were then replaced by a concrete porch.

Thank you Dorothy for this very good picture of the school.
