This picture is from the Newton Press-Mentor, April 11, 1968 and contributed by Karen Fink. Her grandmother is Mabel Foote, born in 1891.....dating this picture to have been taken around 1895. Karen also says that the school was probably in the area of the Fairview or Tin Top Church about seven miles north of Newton in Wade Township.

Many thanks to Karen for contributing it!
