One Room School Memorial of Marion County, Salem, IL

The school was originally East Nation School.  The One Room School House memorial is next to Salem Community High School on Park Street, part of the high school campus.  It was relocated to this location, then restored by the Marion County Teachers Association, and rededicated June 5, 1980.  It is a memorial to days gone by. The picture with the title “One Room School House Memorial” was taken by the photographer Mousseau Ellis on August 13, 2010, and published over Panoramio.

  1. My dad went to a one-room school in Foster Twnship. in Patoka. I still have some of his and his brothers’ schoolbooks and if you’d like to have them, I’d be happy to donate them. Thank you.
