Sherman School, Bennington Township, Marshall County, Illinois

Donated by Folkert D. Cremer

Mr. Cramer writes " I am so sorry the photo isn't of better quality, if I happen to run into another and better photo I will send it.   The building on the left is the Cob & Coal Shed for the School. I attended this School four years until it closed in I believe the summer of 1950. My maternal Grandfather John Ruestman served a Director for 36 years, from information I find in his Obituary.  My Grandfather lived about a quarter west and across the road from this School and at least one of the Teacher's that I know of Boarded with his family while Teaching here. Both of my Parents also attended this School."
