One-Room Schools of Easton
In 1997 a group of people working on behalf of the Easton Library initiated a project to preserve information about rural school education in Easton. The photographs we have on display were reproduced from historic originals coming primarily from a collection thoughtfully preserved by Avis and John Visser, and loaned by Theresa and Gilbert Pratt. Natalie Beck, Shirley DeFoe and Gilbert Wright also provided photographs. There are 18 photographs in our collection. These are just a few.
