Town School Album:  Call for Photos

Bellingham-school

Third Grade Dawson Class – year unknown

You may have seen our recently restored album of Lac qui Parle County country schools. Now it is time to create a companion album of the town schools. We are looking for photos of schools, students, teachers, and other historically significant subjects relating to schools in the county towns, including Madison, St. Michael’s, the Normal School, Bellingham, Boyd, Dawson, Marietta, Rosen and Lac qui Parle Valley. It is not necessary to permanently donate your photos; stop in during museum hours and we can scan photos while you wait if necessary or for pickup in a few days.  If you wish to submit photos by mail or submit scans, please contact us for further information.

We are still looking for more photos and information on the country school album as well.
