Description

Black and white photograph of Booker T. Washington School, exterior, rear view. The actual date of construction and occupancy for this school, which served African American students, is not known. Booker T. Washington school was at one time located at the corner of Greystone and Cambridge Avenues in the southern part of old Wyandot, Kansas. It was a room frame structure with a large, pot-bellied stove which was anchored to the wooden floor, dead center of the room. There was no plumbing or electricity in the building, therefore, the children had to use two outhouses when the rest room was needed.
