Although these pictures are of children and teachers who went to or taught at the Elwood School and are not in Buchanan County, Missouri, they are posted here because Elwood, Kansas is just across the Missouri River from St. Joseph. Many of the people on either side of the river were related and went back and forth. The photos were found in a home at 1015 Vine Street in St. Joseph, Missouri.
If you are related to any of these people and would like to know more about these pictures please e-mail: Norman Hodges at email@example.com
