The old Sixteen School (Linton No. 4) which George Ashbacher and his siblings attended, and where his mother taught, is now available for rent by the day or week.  George says half a century ago he did not feel as kindly toward the old school as he now does.

The photo below was taken sometime between the 1947/1948 school year and the 1950/51 school year.

Linton #4, Sixteen school - bet 1847 & 1951

Contributor's note: The back of this picture listed the names of the teacher and students but it did not indicate if the list was right to left or left to right. I am assuming that since the list started with the teacher the list is from right to left – at least for the back row. Because several student’s names were unknown, I am not certain that the order of the names will be correct based on where they are standing.
