  • I shot one of the last classes, if not THE last class, at Kage School.


    I went back to the school in 2010 and discovered old names and dates scratched into the bricks. If they were real, some dated to 1899 and 1913. I also documented the building's condition and looked for traces of the school's outhouse.

  • I can positively identify 3 of the children in the 1953-54 Kage photo: 2nd row to the right of the information block - Ann Keller (myself in 2nd grade) & Larry Altenthal; 3rd row 5th child - Patty Altenthal (my fellow 2nd grader). I think the 2nd child in the 1st row may be Donna Strauser; and 4th child in the 3rd row may be Kent Heise - but not positive on those.
