Two More Photos of Grove School No.8

Today I have two more photos of students standing in front of Grove School No.8, Black Creek Township, Mercer County, Ohio. One photo was taken before 1930 and the other taken in 1930. A big thanks to Doug Roebuck for sharing these photos. And even better, he has identified most of the students in the 1930 photo.

Grove School No. 8 was located in Section 33, situated on the south side what is now State Route 707, a little west of Wabash Road. The school was taken town years ago.

The photo below was taken in 1930.
