When School Worked

On the last Saturday of the month the ladies of the Baytown Historical Preservation Association open up an old one room schoolhouse and farmhouse that they maintain at the Texas Heritage Park on Main Street in Baytown. This old schoolhouse was is almost continuous service in the Wooster area from 1896 to 1985! Wooster was an unincorporated area of what was known as the Tri-Cities of Pelly, Goose Creek, and Baytown before the cities merged into what is now Baytown. The ladies do an excellent job of educating the public about the rural past of the area and I highly recommend stopping by if ever get the chance.

The angle that you selected for this one is very good. I think it adds a lot of interest to the overall photograph.

Good job.
