Locust School Announcements

Locust School Announcements!

The Locust School Committee will not open the school regular weekend hours this summer. The plan is to give tours by appointment only, persons interested need to contact one of the committee members to arrange a time.
Committee members are   Paul Hexom – 563-382-5765,  LaVonne Bjergum, and Glenn Larson


The Locust School is open for tours, by appointment only, for the 2021 season.  Arrangements to tour the school can be made by calling the Winneshiek County Historical Society office, 563-382-4166.  Along with the rest of the community, the school is still struggling with the collateral damage of COVID-19, but was still able to host four school tours for a total of 206 people.  The photos speak to the fun time the students have as they experience a school day in a different era.


At the present time the Committee is in the process of evaluating the work that has been done and how to proceed for the preservation of the school and its future direction.  THANK YOU to those new members who have stepped forward to help with charting this direction and a huge THANK YOU to those Committee members who have worked so hard in the past and are willing to lend their expertise to the new Committee members.
