Orion School In 1905 - submitted by Alice Shook, 1998

The children all attended the Old Orion School. School only lasted for a few months in the Winter time, as the pupils were all farmers children and were needed a home to work. The children all attended school at the old Orion school house which was located north and east of their home. Walking was the only means of school transportation in those days. During the early years of the 1900's, there would be anywhere from 40 to 50 pupils attending the one-room rural school at Orion. The pupils were all ages and all grades, and one teacher was in charge of all of them. The Teacher of the Orion Community School in 1905 was Margaret Engles.
