The Roth - Ross - Ivywald School and the Wiler School, Highland Township

The Roth School was District #2 in Highland Township. It is thought that this school sat at the intersection of Blanchard and Kinner Roads.

The Farmland News was another newspaper that often ran vintage photos from the old schools.  Donated by its readers, these photos are especially valuable to those researchers who have no photo of their ancestor as a youth.  


**********

This school souvenir booklet was dated 1936 and included both the Ross and Wiler Schools.  Apparently, district numbers changed, as well, depending on school closures, perhaps.  It is thought that the Wiler School was located on Dohoney Road just south of Bowman Road.


If anyone has information on these schools, please comment.
