Kinton School #37


Kinton School #37


Black and white image of students seated and standing in front of their school. With two rooms, Kinton was one of the larger schools in the county, and one of the first to have offered high school grades outside of the larger communities such as Hillsboro. By the time of this photo, high school students were being bused into Hillsboro for classes. The teacher at the time of this photo was identified as Miss Helen Schneider, most likely the woman standing to the left at the back of the group. See WCMpic_013088 for another image of this school. Though museum records identify these images as being taken on the same day, October 5, 1936, they most likely represent two different school years. The old school building, long abandoned, can still be seen in Kinton.
