Taft School Lockport IL 1909


Taft School District 90 is within the southwest part of Lockport. The district dates from before 1888. In the 19th century it was called school district #9 of Lockport Township, and named the South Lockport School.


We were successful, and earned a total of $4,000. We had a celebratory luncheon for it on May 7. Mr. Winge, who now resides in Napa, CA, attended the luncheon at Taft with his wife, Arlene. We do have some pictures of it as well.
