Historic Schoolhouse Could Come to Columbia
Humphreys and the Boone County Historical Society want to make sure the building is not forgotten.
"This is part of history, but it would disintegrate," Humphreys explained. "You can see the paint is coming off the walls. The historical society hopes to restore the schoolhouse, as well as relocate it."
The schoolhouse could move from its home near Ashland to Columbia's Nifong Park, where the historical society hopes people will share their memories of the building.
Humphreys entered her painting of the schoolhouse in this weekend's Boone County Art Show in Columbia.
