Southern Oregon Historical Society recently released a post on their Facebook page showcasing a picture of Bellview School in the 1900's.
Bellview is a historic community within Ashland. There has been a school on the Bellview site since the late 1800's when it was a community separate from the city and its own school district. We were very fortunate in 2006 when the voters of Ashland passed a bond measure allowing the school to be rebuilt, while preserving the historic portion of the school which was built in 1910. The Bellview staff was able to work with architects and community members to design the building that you see today which opened in the fall of 2009.
Looking at clothing and the fact that this building is looking fresh and newish, it probably was at the new 1910 school. Trees are bare, so it correlates with the same time of year.
