Chapel Hill School 1931

Some old history from one of the many one-room schools we used to have all over the county.   Such an important part of our county, these schools of long ago.  A vital part of the community, not only for learning, but for just bringing the community closer together as a family.  It's a lonesome feeling now thinking of these days of yesteryear.
