Indiana Schools In The Early 1900s May Shock You. They’re So Different.

Close your eyes for a moment and think about what school looks like today. Between your experience, your children’s experience, and maybe your grandchildren’s experience, you likely have a few different pictures in your head. Do you know what school life looked like in the early 1900’s? I’ve done some digging and Indiana schools in the early 1900s may shock you. Here are some incredible photos from that time.

What do you think about these pictures? Do you have any stories from the early 1900s? Did you or a family member go to school then? Share with me in the comments! I’d love to know which picture is your favorite as well as any stories you have.
