Upper Corner School

There has been a lot of interest in my recent blog post on the Bowers School.  It has started folks to talking about the other one room schools and who the teachers were there.


So, I'm on a mission to create a list of teachers for each school, and to try to make it as complete as possible!  In addition, I need to know more about each school house - when was it built, what were the years of operation, what was it constructed of, where there any unique architectural features?  To do this, I have to have your help!!!!!


You can help by going to the Teacher Roll Call page and sending me the information you know about the one and two room school houses that dotted the Woodcock Valley.  If you attended one of these schools, please let me know who your teachers were.


To get us started, I will focus on the Upper Corner School.  This is where my dad went as a young boy.  He and his family lived in the hollow close by.  Here is a class photo that was shared with me by Ralph Garner.  It is from the 1937-1938 school year.


To see the names of the people in the photo, click on the photo above.


Some of the teachers I am aware of at the Upper Corner School include:

  • Lena Grace Norris 1910
  • Mabel Hampton 1925-1926
  • Helen E. McCloskey 1927
  • Chloe Garner 1930-1931


If you know of more teachers, please use the roll call form or e-mail me.  Again, I would like to set up a page for each school, so let me know if you have info on schools other than just the Upper Corner School.
