Galland School

Along river road is Galland School; Iowa's first known pioneer school built in 1830. The original was cut up and used for firewood. This model of the original 10' x 12' school was built in 1940. Prior to that the Keokuk Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution marked the school's original site with the boulder and plaque in 1924.

Cropping to a 6 x 8. I went to this site thinking I would have a nice view of the river as a background; this is one of those times I wish the trees were bare.
