What an awesome picture that recently surface at the museum! This vintage scene depicts a reunion of the North Jordan School. This school was located in Woodland Township of Barry County and is within the Lakewood School District. There is no identification of anyone and it appears to be outside of a barn. Further research may help pinpoint a year to this but if anyone can add anything let us know!


This past summer during the Depot Day Celebration the Lake Odessa Area Historical Society honored local pharmacies from our history and present day. Alton Nye was an early pharmacist practicing his business for most of his life time here. It was a pleasure to have Alton Nye's grandson Dean Kelley present for the special tribute. Mr. Kelley brought with him several photographs, including the above, to share for this occasion. Mr. Nye is pictured on the right with another man who is unidentified. It looks like they caught their limit of fish that day!
