Virginia and others have asked about the locale of the photo now serving as header for this page and my Facebook home page, too. It was taken at this time last year (I know that's cheating) in Pleasant Township, just at the turnoff from the Zion Cemetery road where you start meandering down toward the site of old Olmitz along Cedar Creek.

Centennial School once was located just over the wooded hill in the distance to the northwest. Centennial was named, of course, because it was built in 1876. It also was one of the first schools taught by my grandfather, back in 1895.
