Simpler Times - Quarve Schoolhouse #3 in Benson County ND
Photograph - Photograph
I shot this around the time of the summer riots of 2020, and for me, it reflects back to much simpler, calmer times - A time when all grades k-8 shared a single room and a single teacher. But then I realized that maybe that perception is a temporal illusion - after all, those were the times of polio, Spanish Flu, rampant death in childbirth, WW1, WW2, Dustbowl, depression, hunger, etc. Maybe the PRESENT is the "simpler times"... but I digress..
This is the "Quarve #3" schoolhouse in Benson County, and has been documented by Kathy Wilner on the ND Country Schoolhouse website: https://statemuseum.nd.gov/.../SHP.../Sites/32BE00230web.pdf
