    I’m new to the PHS website and am not sure how to navigate it completely yet; but wanted to mention that the pictures of “the Little Red School House” bring back memories for me. My Grandmother, Leone (Wood) Roberts (born in 1922) attended this school and each time that we would visit Putney, VT from our home in Western MA, she would tell us of how she would take her sled from the top of Leon Wood Road (the white house at the top was where she and her family lived; her Dad being “Leon Wood”) around that hair-pin turn, and to the bottom at the school house in the winter months! She always had stories to tell about this school that are happy memories for her, and now for our family. Thank you for sharing these wonderful pictures with us!

    Hi jersmom,
    We just had the Kathan reunion and were looking at photos from 1930 and 1931 at the little red school house…Dexter and Robert Kathan were in it, and your grandmother. The Kathan boys were later WWII veterans. Thank you for looking!
