From the OHButler-L group:
"Would anyone know where a person, living in Oxford Twp. in 1930, would have gone to high school?"

Gene answered:
"A resident of Reily Township would have gone to Reily High School, in Reily, Ohio, Butler County........if they were closer to Oxford, they would have gone to Stewart, since Talawanda didn't exist until I was in school, in the 50's. Talawanda was made up of more than one school district, supposedly to save money and give the kids a better education, but there was a lot of resentment from some of the constituents for taking their local school (Morgan High School, at Okeana, Ohio) away from them. Depending on where they lived, they either went to Ross or Talawanda. Reily and Morgan both ended up as lower-grade schools. Smith Library, at Oxford, will have all of the information that you need."
