~ contributors note: I'm not sure when the school house picture was taken. The school building is still standing, although it is now being used as a livestock barn and the bell is gone.

1st & 2nd grade class of the Village Creek school ca 1920/21
~ contributors note: I don't know the names of the kids except for my dad, Thomas Warren, 2nd row up from the bottom - 2nd boy from the left. He was born in 1913 so he'd be 7 or 8 in the picture.
