Crossroads school

Crossroads School, Lawrence County. In the 1920s this school was the scene of a terrible explosion when a group of boys were kicking a can at recess. The can they found in the ditch was a nitro can. Seven boys, including two of my Petty ancestors and a teacher were killed. The gentleman who gave me this photo said the explosion
occurred at the right side of the picture around to the back of the building, where there was a bridge. Submitted by Lois Kay Steere
