The Cogdell School was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1939. Joan Burnett Bond writes: I went to school here 1946 to 1951. Our family lived “catty corner” across the street at the back of the school. Ann Sessoms was my teacher and as I recall she had 1st through 5th grade all in one classroom. I took music lessons and practiced and did recitals in the auditorium. I can’t believe this beautiful brick structure has been left to rot away. I played jacks on the stoop in the back of the school for many years, this is where we girls met to play daily.
