Rockford School House Painting

A typical one-room school house from Rockford’s early days was painted by Adah Stone McBride, a member of Rockford Area Historical Society. Noted in this framed photo: “First school house in Rockford area, 1840s.” There definitely is a “Grandma Moses” feel to this historic rendering of an important early facet of Rockford life that continues to be important to this day: education. This school house building is still standing behind the Krause Memorial Library on Monroe Street.
