The Good Old School Days
Recreating history: Re-enactor Toni Lasher, standing at rear left, is the schoolmarm at the Knox
Historical Society’s final summer program, about life in a one-room schoolhouse, which took place on
Sunday, Aug. 25. Here, she tells the children that two students often shared one wooden desk. They
had to stand up carefully to avoid banging the seat against the desk behind them.
