    Hi,

    My Mother, Edith Berg , is the girl, third from the left, Velma LeMaster is the girl at the end with the vest, I think the boy in back of my Mother is my Uncle Fred. The building became the home of the Krones family, first Leonard and Myrtle, then Earl and Liz Krones, I visited there with my Mother many times. The building was basically unchanged for many years, including the original outhouse out back. There used to be a restaurant next to it called “The Baked Apple Inn” which also became a family home but was torn down before the schoolhouse was.
