Comments from Jenny Frazier

"I had several of these teachers when I attended Erie. A lot of these teachers were Methodist Deaconesses.

Front row, second from right is Helen Meredith. Miss Meredith was the Librarian. Erie had a huge library.

Front row, first from left is Esther Edwards. She was the dietitian.

Back row, third from left is Grace Reuter. She was 7th and 8th grade teacher. She also taught my dad (Edwin Mundy) when he went to Erie.

Back row, fourth from left is Edna Jones. She was the Math teacher. My dad told me the names of the others, but I can't remember."

"My aunt Auderene (Richmond) Hamilton gave this picture to my mom Earline Richmond Porter.

I took my mom to the one room school house reunion this past saturday 8-8-08 at Globe.

"I showed this picture to 93 year old Hazel Garvin of Olive Hill.
She said, that is Miss Rheuter, far left, middle row. She says this picture was taken at the Erie School,
and this is probably all the teachers, and/or faculty."

"Hazel Garvin attended there for a few years. Hazel stayed in Aiken Hall which was the girls dorm."

The middle row far right is Muriel Day from New York who was the head of the Woman's Society of Christian Service (United Methodist) who operated the school. I attended Erie for 10 years and would have graduated there except it was closed. The women thought that it wasn't needed any longer with better bus routes for kids to attend the consolidated schools. I was a day student. My dad and several aunts and uncles also attended there. Miss Edwards is the one in the middle, bottom row. I remember her and Miss Reuter well, but of course they were much older when I attended there. I remember when Miss Day would visit the campus. She was quite elderly when I was in grade school. Jenny Frazier tjf60 @

They recently (maybe 7 or 8 years ago) covered the outside with gray siding and remodeled the inside."

"Yes, this is Erie School.

The teacher is Helen Meredith, who was still there when I attended in 1948. I don't recognize the students."

"There was a reunion of former Erie School students at the Olive Hill Methodist Church on Aug. 5, 2007."
"Former students expressed fond memories of the old school".
"Students walked down the hill on Sundays to attend services at the Methodist Church".

The school closed in 1958.
