School at Roy, probably Saint Francis parish school


School at Roy, probably Saint Francis parish school


Black and white image of a group of students gathered outside of a school building with their teacher. Identified in museum records as the school at Roy, Oregon, this is most likely St. Francis School, associated with the Saint Francis parish. The church in Roy was an offshoot of the church in Verboort, Oregon, where most of the families in the area went to church until the early 1900s, when Roy gained enough population to support its own parishes. As of 2012, the school was still in operation. See WCMpic_013035 and WCMpic_013037 for other images of this school during this time period. All three photos are dated May 22, 1938, though there is no way to determine which photo was actually taken on that date.
