Our schoolhouse was typical of its time. It had all the equipment to make an early day one room schoolhouse functional. There was a barn for the riding horses, and the horses that pulled the ever-present buggies, two pit toilets, and one woodshed. Also, a pump that had no windmill over it and a flag pole for showing what country we lived in. Sagebrush was chopped out between the barn and schoolhouse so we kids could play games during the noon hour.
