Christianson Rural School

  • Sit in a 100-year-old school desk, but no carving your name, please.

  • Note the ink wells.  And the old desk carvings.  Flag pole is original.

  • Find the "hand grenade" fire extinguisher.  Don't touch.

  • Read the list of students and teachers.  Black boards were really black.

  • Gather around the stove and look for presidents, old maps and globes.

  • Hundreds of old text books.  See Spot Run.  Where's the water fountain?
