Bears School

Our picture this month comes from Gladys Shamp Mullen and is of a Church picnic at Bears School formally located on the north side of old route 30 half way between Jakes Restaurant and The Rancho Grande. A number 3 is painted on the building which probably indicates that it is school district 3 of East Union township and a sign to the left probably indicates that the gathering is for the Willing Workers Sunday School class of the United Brethren Church. I would guess judging by the age of the cars that this picture may have been taken in the mid 1920’s.
