Contributed information and pictures:

 

My grandmother, Lylle Reichert, who graduated from Juneau High School in 1915, taught at the American Eagle School until 1919 when she married my grandfather, Herbert Rohde (whose sister, Esther Rohde, preceded Lylle as teacher).  Everyone in that immediate area was related in one way or the other.  My grandfather's two brothers married two of Lylle's sisters, and another brother married Lylle's cousin.  In 1917, fully one-half of Lylle's class were first cousins, and the class also including her little brother Hilbert.

 

The school was located on Eagle Road, immediately west of the cemetery that is still there on the south side of the road.  The original Tabor Ev. Church (now in Juneau) was located in the northeast quadrant of the cemetery.  The old schoolhouse was still standing until the early 1980s (used then to store hay) but then burned down.  I recall my great-aunt explaining to me how, when you went through the front door, there were separate entrances into the classroom for boys and girls. 

 

I'm attaching some photos, which I believe are self-explanatory. 

 

Sincerely, Matt Rohde
