Legend at bottom: “In the education of children love is first to be instilled, and out of love obedience is to be educed.”
This school was also known as the “Peanut School.” It was at the top of the brick hill (old 51/Church Street). Note that there were 66 students (38 boys, 28 girls) and one teacher. This was a one-room schoolhouse, with all ages mixed. How did they manage to learn?! Perhaps it had to do with the eduction of obedience.
