Another fine looking bunch of students from the old Number 19 school. This school
was located across from Harvey Robinson's Grocery. Or, if you don't remember Harvey
Robinson's Grocery, this school was located on the outside bend of the big curve on
Hwy 1245 coming down the hill from Echols. Number 19 School was located in a valley
with Echols being on the Rockport side of the school and Chinn Hill being on the Rochester
Road Side. I don't remember the school nor the school building. My father told me
that he used to drive a wagon past the school and going toward Chinn Hill and the
Rochester Road. As he would pass the school, he would holler "School Butter" and the
older students would try to leave the school to chase after him. What "School Butter"
meant and why it made the students mad is beyond me. My father would laugh every time
that he told the story, thus there may be more to the story than I know.
Hope you're all gonna have a great day ahead.
