On the back of the photo is written, "The only school mother ever went to." Probably in reference to the my great grandmother Edith M. Horne Cozad who lived from 1870 to 1945.
The Plank Road School, a one-room school house, located on road 258 about 2 miles northwest of Mercer in Jefferson Township, is still standing today. It has been converted to a house.
After the school closed, the build was used for the Jefferson Grange.
