I have a photo of the old Stennett stone school house I can send you by e-mail if you are interested. My g grandmother was born in 1857
in Stennett (north of Red Oak) and went to school in this school house. Its foundation was made of the limestone that is still quarried at the Stennett rock quarry. The photo was of the blgng as it stood in 1929, had the roof yet. now it is just walls which can hardly be seen by the over grown brush. It was always my hope that the site could be cleared and a roadside marker be put up to tell passersby what it was. Oh well....depots are much more important structures I guess than the ones that were involved in EARLY Montgomery county history.
Let me know if you would like for me to send it to you.

I am looking for Historical views of Montgomery County, Iowa. Do you have
something you are willing to share or know where I might be able to locate
Historical photos or postcards of Montgomery County?
I would like to say a big thank you to the list and to the Montgomery County
Historical Society for finding descendants of my great-uncle Harry Jones
from nothing more than a photograph.
Special thank yous to Betty McKenzie, Myra Damewood and Donna Smith, and an
especially big thank you to Jeanette Lawson who identified Harry's
granddaughter and put us in touch.
I'm absolutely thrilled to put names to the faces in the photograph and to
find living relatives in the USA.
