150 Years of Boone County Education

A Bell Rings Out: 150 Years of Boone County Education

Opening in October of 2014, this outstanding exhibit was planned and executed by Laurel Wilson, Nancy Ginn-Martin, Sue Viola and Al Viola. It is a marvelous display of Boone County schools and classrooms as they existed over the past 150 years. Each corner of the West Exhibit Hall contains something special. Wander over to the south wall and find more than dozen mounted photos of Boone County’s one-room school houses. Wander to another corner of the hall and find dozens of wonderful artifacts representing the clubs, sports teams, concert bands and other school activities from Hallsville, Sturgeon, Columbia, Centralia and Ashland. You will also find a fun exhibit featuring prom dresses and men’s prom fashions from over the years. The ‘prom display’ includes large, framed photos of prom date couples through the decades.

See the ‘scary’ Kewpie mascot head. See the the State Basketball Championship trophy that bears the name of the Hickman High School student body president in 1936 – Sam Walton. The exhibit will run through early October, 2015.
