      Adair County hosts rural school reunion

      This one-room schoolhouse is located near Lockridge, Iowa.

      For the first time ever, Adair County will hold a reunion for those who attended the county's rural one-room schools.

      Schoolhouses like the one in Yarrow typically had no electricity or running water; however, there was a well nearby.

      The rural school reunion is being held at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 22, at the El Kadir Shrine Club in Kirksville.

      Larry Evans is in charge of the activities, and he told us he is looking forward to the turnout.
