Darwin Bennett presented an outstanding program at the Feb. 12 meeting of the Lake Odessa Area Historical Society on the history of the Tamarac area. As part of his presentation Darwin presented all of his research in a book form. This will be placed in the School Room at the Freight Station Museum and is available for further research. Included in the book are many documents, photos and related items concerning the Tamarac school, church and neighborhood. One photo, shown above, is of the Tamarac School in 1922. Identification is need for most of the students. Only three individuals have been identified. In the back row, fourth from the left, is Edna B. Decker-teacher. The last two boys in the front row, to the right, are Kenneth Rush and Leslie Rush. If anyone can identify others please leave a comment here or contact the Society.
