Individual U.S. School: Jackson Center School (Webber, Kansas)


Figure 1.--Here we see the Jackson Center School in 1911. It was a one or two room school. Notice how the wood plank building stands out on the flat, treeless Kansas prarie. The school was located east of Webber, Kansas, a town in north-central Kanasa near the Nebraska line with a rail station--the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe. A rail ine at the time was the making of a small town. We do mot know much about about the town, but it seems to be a town in a largely farming community. The school itself looks very new. Tere are about 30 children. The girls wear dresses. The older boys wear suits. The younger boys wear blouses. The boys excet for the ones wearing overalls wear knickers and long stockings. One boy wears a sailor suit. All in all, an excellent view of 1910s fashions. The school marrm poses with the children.
