Elder's Ridge Academy Classroom, Early 20th Century

The date of this photo is unknown; however, it is probably from the very early 20th century. The wood floors and wood wainscoting can be clearly seen. Above the blackboard there appears to be patterned wallpaper. The coal-fueled potbelly stove was used to heat the classroom.
