Schoolhouses Sold

Both of the old frame schoolhouses were bought by their neighbors.

Edward Niksch farmed a parcel of land that embraced the northwest corner of Randolph and E. 73rd, where the Deep River schoolhouse stood (and still stands).

Sometime between 1891 and 1908, Helmuth (aka Michael) Foreman had bought the farmland that included the site of the old Ainsworth school. The school building was torn down sometime in the 1970s and I don't know exactly where it stood, but I've marked its approximate location with a green x on this excerpt from the 1926 Plat Book:

The guests throwing the surprise party for Annie Rossow (mentioned in the "Local and Personal" column above the item about the school building sales) went to the Rossow farm at County Line Road and 700 N.

And here's what Charles and Amelia Goldman were advertising at the Ainsworth general store.
