School in Everett
For any child in modern America, the school years define life. But can you imagine having less than ten classmates in your grade? During the 1930s, children in Everett attended a one-room school house, with one teacher teaching eight grade levels. Like most buildings in the village, the schoolhouse lacked electricity, phones, and indoor plumbing. Rain or shine, snow or sleet, students walked up the hill from their homes to their classes. The Everett school later closed and merged with a larger school in Peninsula, and the building became a private residence.
