Part Sixty-One ~ A Look Out of Town

June 19, 2017

This week, Vintage Westport is venturing out of the village and taking a peek at some of the outlying schools in the district.  Back in the days of the one-room schoolhouses, children would walk for miles every day to class and some would even hop on the B&W and ride to school in style on the train with a monthly pass.

 

 

 

From the pages of The Review-Mirror, this photo of the students of Salem School was taken on Arbor Day in 1937.

 

 This photo from 1951 was found in the pages of The Review-Mirror and shows the students of Ardmore School on the Mountain.

 

The students of Bell’s School stand outside the building in 1954. The pupils had the added interest of the train running right behind the school and would often get up to shenanigans when one would pass by. (scanned courtesy of The Review-Mirror).
