“Remembering the Rural One Room Schools of LaSalle County, Illinois”
A book that chronicles LaSalle County’s rural one-room schools is now available. The book, “Remembering the Rural One-Room Schools of LaSalle County, Illinois,” includes memories from people who experienced one-room schools, either as students or teachers. In addition, there is information about schools in each of the 37 townships of the county. Stories, pictures, names of students and teachers, sample report cards, certificates and other memorabilia are included, recalling a bygone era.
The one-room school was the center of the rural community for many years, and at one time LaSalle County had more one-teacher schools than any other county in the nation.
