SCHOOL DAYS OF LONG AGO
This school photo was taken at the Odessa Center School about the years 1899-1900 and shows the school children of that day. It will soon be time for the Historical Society's annual school display and photos and items such as this will be the focus. The Society is working on collecting more information concerning all Rural Schools that were in the Lakewood School District. The Odessa Center School was located at the corner of Jordan Lake and Bippley Roads and is today remodeled into a residence.
