Memorabilia from Maynard School

The first picture is a copy of a report on George Washington by Ida H. Hoagland written Feb 21, 1895. I found it inside a wall half chewed by mice. All I have been able to find out about Ida is she later was Silas Ripley's second wife after his first died young. The second picture shows an old honey bee hive inside one of the walls. And the last picture is a blackboard we found under the slate blackboard. This was simply boards painted black and used to write on. This is a list of kids who cleaned the school house in Nov of 1905. Hopefully, I can find out more about Ida, I still have one area to look through to see if I can find any more papers. Mountain girl, Paula, logging out.
