While passing through the town of McMillan near Newberryin da U.P. I saw this old school building and I had to stop and take a pic of it. I am thinking it has not been used in a while but it looks like it is in great shape and someone is taking care of it. I thought it was strange there are almost no windows in the front wall. I guess that is where the chalkboards are hung. I found out it was called the Lincoln School and funny enough I found this old postcard of almost the exact same angle as the photo I took, you can see it on Amazon HERE
P.S. I asked my daughter who is in high school if she ever used a chalkboard and she did not know what I was talking about. I told her it was a dark green or black slate hung on the wall and we used chalk to write on it instead of the whiteboards you have now. She said “that just sounds weird”
