    Wasn’t King’s Academy in this building around 2000-01?

    I attended New Era School for the first through seventh grades. Each October we had a harvest festival that was loads of fun. The auditorium is gone but the the classroom areas were converted years ago. I can still name my teachers from each class. Small rural schools were a wonderful time. A time gone by. I can remember going to the school on a Saturday to get the polio vaccine in a sugar cube.
