Long Description:
One can just imagine sitting in class being warmed by the pot bellied stove in the school room. And imagine recess playing in the area surrounding the school house. (and potty breaks in the detached out building) Iowa winters can be harsh with wind whipped snow covering the ground. The students of today have it made!
