In 1904 Mary Freeman was a student in the one-room schoolhouse built
just after the Civil War. "The Fear of Miss Mary Louise Snook Is the Beginning
of Wisdom." The school usually numbered forty to fifty students. Miss Snook taught
every one of them. "There was a black family living next door. The Freemans.
... Rosella Freeman went to school with me. There were at least two of those Freeman
sisters that came to the school. And the parents of those children worked for Mr. Bruere
who had Bruer's Mill. Mr. Freeman drove the carriage to town and so on." Della Sweebey Williams,
The Princeton Recollector 1979 (October), VOL V(1), 1.
The original school house still stands. It was moved to Spruce Street
in Princeton, faced with brick, and serves as a private home.
