Day 18 – The School Houses

Tribe's Mum and De Smet's first school

The next structure is the white school Laura and her sisters attended – for a time it was used as a house, and they are busy restoring is, and divining clues to its colorful past. Faded marking on the walls and blackboard hidden behind later walls are slowly being uncovered to reveal the forgotten purpose of the building.

The last school is a replica of the one Laura taught at, a rough hewn structure little better than a chicken coop, with two small poorly done windows set into the brown hued walls. More light comes from the gaps in the boards than these windows.
