The Ada Herald, Ada, Ohio, March 2, 1982

A cloth banner was found by The Ada Herald recently. A very well done painting is on each side of the banner, but the reason for either side being painted is unknown. Does anyone of our readers remember anything of the ONU Club, or what American Tin and Honest Dollars could stand for?

Liberty Township one-room schools

When the one room schools were built they were officially named District School No.1, No.2, and on through District School No.9. The schools were soon given names by the local school trustees, often given the surname of the person that donated the ground for the school. Some were named for the family that had the most pupils in the school.
