Rosedale School

One of our county schools that very little history has been written about is the Rosedale School. 

It must have been located in the Tolu-Irma area of the county, judging by the family names of students that attended there in the early 1900's.

The picture was made in the school year 1922-23.  It must have made by Miss Geneva Wilcox, who was the teacher during this time.  

Her students at this time were, Ruby Gilland, Dimple Watson, Reba Herrell, Syble Kimsey, Fort Watson.

The little school closed in the 1930's with the students being sent to the Tolu School.  It's a shame not more history about the school was recorded all those years ago.  For now it's almost faded from our history.
