Davis School House

from the clipping collection of Ruth Crawley Maness

This picture of the one room school house in the Davis Community appears to have been made around 1915.  It was scanned from a copy of a newspaper article and is in poor condition.  The Davis School House building was used for a Church and Sunday School after the school was closed.

If anyone can provide a better copy of this picture, please contact me.
