Silver Star

How can it be that there was once a school near Weston, Idaho and I had never heard of it?

It was called the Silver Star School.

The photo is circa 1922.  Word has it that they used to conduct dances there as well.

Harold B. Lee started his teaching career at the Silver Star in 1916 at the age of 17. At the age of 18, he became the principal of the Oxford school.

While trying to find where the Oxford school might have been, I came across this priceless picture from Mr. Dee Boyce, a wonderful Oxford citizen an historian (take a look; it's pretty fabulous)
