Peshtigo Schoolhouse Photo

Printed in centennial edition of the Peshtigo Times, 06OCT1971, pg 6

"SCHOOL HOUSE -- This photo of the Peshtigo House of Learning was taken in 1870 -- just one year before the school and all the other occupied buildings in Peshtigo burned in the Great Fire."

It was amazing to see this picture.  And sad.  And chilling.  I sit here and wonder how many of these people survived the fire.  No names with the photo.  I can only imagine that if there were names they would have appeared with the photo.
