Chester High School, 1929, Dodge County

Donny Screws writes: This is the original Chester High School, built in 1927. Rebuilt in 1929 after a tornado outbreak damaged the foundation. Many people graduated from Chester High, and when Dodge County built a consolidated High School, it became Chester Elementary School in the late 50s. I went to school there and taught there my first year, as did my wife. I have posted extensively on Chester Elementary and there is also a Chester Elementary School Page on Facebook. There are a thousand great stories to tell from that great School. Looking at that picture, every room has a fascinating history. I have tons of photos also. Good photo here. Holler if anyone wants more information.
