An Old Stone Schoolhouse in Springfield

I haven’t had a lot of time to work on this lately but a conversation started which I wanted to quickly share.  Today I got an introduction from a comment on my technology blog.

Aug Blanchat inquiry about stone school house in springfield

Here are the pictures I have:

Aug went on to say

I believe it was Ike Osteen who was more than glad to tell me about the schoolhouse – wasn’t he the Baca county historian (that was in 1993)?   My G- Grandpa Joseph Blanchat resided near Walsh and raised several sons who were stone masons into their eighties (who also may be in the photograph)

One of the pleasures of moderating this blog is getting to speak with many wonderful people connected to Baca County.   If anyone has any more info on the pictures above let us know ?
