West Union School Students


West Union School Students


Sepia-toned photograph of a group of school students ranging in age from elementary to teenagers. Notice that most of the boys wear overalls, and the girls mostly have short hair, and wear short dresses. At this time, 1933, the area was still largely rural, with farms and a sawmill. West Union was the first school district in Washington County, formed in 1851. The building behind the students in this image was the second building to house the school, and was in use from 1892 until 1949. Today, the school is part of the nearby Hillsboro School District.
