Old School Items

Walworth, NY

Wayne County, NY

Walworth School District No. 12 Wayne County NY

This is an original school souvenir for School District No. 12, Town of Walworth, given to students by their teacher, Mark B. Furman. School souvenirs were most popular between 1900 and 1910. Usually given out at the end of the school year at "one room" rural schoolhouses that served children from the immediate neighborhood, they're valuable as circumstantial evidence for narrowing down the area within a town where a family resided. School souvenirs of this period will show children born just before or after 1890, or between the missing 1890 census and next one in 1900.

The photo of Mr. Furman is a real photograph. Below the photograph is a full text transcription. This rare old souvenir may be the only one left, and has been donated to the Office of the County Historian. For information about where this district was located or persons named below, please contact the county historian's office directly. Their web address is in our research section.
