Hillsboro School


Hillsboro School


Sepia-toned image of a large group of people standing in a line before a two-story, gabled building with a belfry and an addition in back. Most of the girls wear pinafores over their dresses; the boys are in pants, jackets, and hats. The adult women wear ankle-length dark dresses. The building has double doors with an arched transom above them, flanked by sets of paned, double-hung windows. The windows in the middle of the second floor mimic the arched construction of the first floor. The building sits in a grassy field , and the people are standing on a boardwalk that runs along the front of the building and into the field. Some people sit on the edge of a raised porch. Other houses and trees are visible in the background of the image.
