The exact date of their hire is not known. I do know that James Brumbaugh was at the Bower School from 1901-1902 and again from 1915-1917. Since Blanche M. Lininger was born in 1902, this most assuredly dates to either the 1915-1916 or 1916-1917 school term. http://woodcockvalley.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=161373793 161373793 Ridge School in Hopewell Township This private residence is believed to be the former Ridge School in Hopewell Township. http://woodcockvalley.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=129439673 129439673 Speck School in Penn Township This school is located in Penn Township on School House Road.
