100 years ago in South County

Children living outside the villages of Vicksburg and Schoolcraft attended one-room schools such as Strong School and Clark School, pictured here (Strong School in the first two pictures and Clark School in the last two). Clark School, District 1, was located on West U Avenue and 8th Street and is no longer standing. Strong School stood on Silver Street and was acquired by the Vicksburg Historical Society in 1996. It has been restored and is now in the Vicksburg Historical Village. The clothing and haircuts were typical of the time.
