Those Places Thursday - Carrollton, Iowa

Those Places Thursday
Carrollton, Iowa

Store about 1920
The people are John Crow, his wife, Delia, and her mother, Mrs. Christopher

In Eileen's 1936 Diary entry in Week 32, she mentioned the school fire in Carrolton. I then posted the local newspaper accounts of that fire, as well. I wanted to follow up with this post about the town itself, focused on this GenWeb based article that is worth a second look.

Notice in the second part of the article, about the current active Carrollton Community Heritage Club, they mention that the "Carrollton schoolhouse is still intact" and go on to mention possible uses of the building to preserve the history of the area. This would be the building that was built after the 1936 fire, 75 years ago.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
