I have been looking for this 1942 book by Ralph Decker, Superintendent of schools in Sussex County at the beginning of the 20th century. Now I have some valuable information of all of the one room school houses in the county. Just goes to show, never stop looking.

Here is an event that, although not pertaining directly to history, is still a worth while event because the Space's have always been very involved in our local history and Lori Space Day has some wonderful stories to tell.
