Life in Hall County Texas 1850 - 1950
Salisbury School in Hall County in 1905

Salisbury School in Hall County in 1905

In 1905 twenty students at the Salisbury  School in Hall County Texas posed with their teacher for this great old photo of a classroom in 1905. Julia Hutcherson is the girl pictured on the back row far right. Salisbury was the first settlement in Hall County in 1887. The railroad depot was closed in 1893 and moved to Estelline four years later. By 1898 the townsite was abandoned. The rural school survived and prospered and prided itself on sports events, including a champion girls' volleyball team. The Salisbury school declined somewhat after the high school grades began being bussed to Memphis in the 1930s.
