Apparently this was taken about the time she married William Rand in 1890. She was born Minnie Armstrong LeRoy in Pennsylvania in 1869. She was living in Contra Costa, California when she died in 1950 and brought to Hood River for burial.
Children: Clyde, Clara, Marian, Edgar, Cora, Dorothy and Carroll.

I took a quick look through the school photos, but didn't see one for the "one room school where the courthouse now stands".
Minnie's father was educated at Oxford and was a Baptist minister. He had been living in LaGrande for some years, but at the time of the marriage he was in Portland.
I didn't find that he was ever a minister in Hood River, so perhaps Minnie came by herself to be a teacher in Hood River.

I think we've also called it the "State Street school."
