Claire Wray in 1958

Tom Mooneyham lived southwest of Bohannon School, and the Mooneham children had probably been attending a different school prior to this year. Their presence at Bohannon might indicate another consolidation closing, possibly of the Woodville School.

The Trachta family had left the area by this time. We invite anyone with memories of the Bohannon School, or any area rural school, to share their memories with us. We'd love to have some more, and better, pictures of the area and the students.
