Waterloo Wednesday – For All the Small Schools

Buildings of former glory slip by the wayside every day. They are often remodeled, re-purposed or demolished and before long, the majority of people forget what the building’s original function was or that it was even there. It could have been a school, a church, a post office, a town hall or a bank building. Couples such as Barb and Dave Else of Cedar Falls have made an effort to recognize schools across Iowa with their book, For All the Small School: A photographic pursuit of Iowa’s forgotten schools. Anyone who can help Barb and Dave Else identify the nine unidentified schools in their book can contact them at daveelse@cfu.net. Their book is available at Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com and thewriteplace.com.
            Time changes everything, yet we can’t forget who we are and where we came from. The former structures of our hometowns molded our lives and the lives of those who have taken the initiative to document or preserve the past; we can’t thank those people enough. We commend you, keep up the great work!
