Here is another view of the East Barrett School. Not sure why, but it is one of my favorites.
You can see the fork of this oak tree in the background.

Allie Forry, my Grandma Gordon’s sister. She married a man last name Powell.
She ran a Millenry (hat) shop in Pomeroy, WA.
She passed around 1980- I helped my Mom clean out the old shop- very interesting stuff. My Older Oak Grove cousins went to school at Barrett, before it was condemned.

All these early schools have a kind of visual pleasure. The architectural style and the choice of trims are just so admirable. The extra windows, the trim on the peak, and what looks like a widow's walk rather than a bell tower, but either way it has the extra trim. Back in the day carpenters took their time to make their work notable.
