Schools of Vernon, Texas

Searching for relatives from the Vernon area draws many people to the display of pictures taken in and of the early schools in Wilbarger County. From the first school in Wilbarger County, a dugout, sod covered, one room to the more "modern" schools built in the 1930's, students in hats and suits and tennis teams in long blouses and long skirts, the History Of Schools always draws a crowd.

A collection of area school yearbooks provides entertainment as well as information for former students as well as researchers.
