Down on the Farm By Mrs. Galliard Heflin Everything is lush and green in the Shelby County country- side, since the good rains of last week. In fact, it was like a steam cooker for a while with the intense heat and all the moisture. Since it cooled off a little, though, it is bearable and the only thing we can complain about is the weeds! Even old timers like us have never seen them so large. Usually it is the native "buttonwood" that is threatening but this year it is an- other native plant called locally, "pigweed". This obnoxious plant appears in lawns, old feedyards, around buildings and in the fields like a plague and farmers are kept busy fighting it. Monday evening, the Shelby County Historical Society was host to 50 persons from Shelby and Audubon Counties who are interested in preservation of old buildings, sites and articles from early days. It was so exciting, because ideas just popped up like popcorn in a popper. This partnership with Audubon County will result in a detailed survey starting Oct. I and con- tinuing for a year. It will be directed by the Iowa State Historic Preservation Bureau. Jim Jacobsen, chief of this Bureau, has been out this way three times in the last four months and is very pleased with the response. Monday night, he brought Kay Simpson, archaeologist, with him and we got into the possibility of pro-historical "digs". Wouldn't THAT be something? Let me know if you have any ideas about Shelby county history in any field. Speaking of Audubon, in 1889 Shelby and Audubon Counties joined forces to publish a county history. I am go- ing to quote from it to clear up some questions that came up at the Fair this year as the Genealogical and Historical Societies emphasized Schools in Floral Hall exhibitions. Among pictures shown there were some of "Old Central" School in Harlan and there were many questions as to where it stood and when it was built. Not too many people remember this beautiful old red brick building which stood on the same sites as the present "Middle School". (I don't remember it but know the site from other research). August 1S - Harlan Christian Womens Club will meet at the 59'or Restaurant from 9:15-11:15 a.m. The special feature will be "Style With Flair." Judy Sundt of Pones, NE., will be the guest speaker. Reservations can be made by calling 755-7489 or 755- 7677. Maxwell family reunion held in Colorado A Maxwell Heritage Con- ference and Reunion were held last week in Ft. Collins, CO. Attending from this area were Arthur and Adeline Maxwell, Larry and Pam Scott, Anabelle Petersen and Max Edwards. More than 100 descendants of John McDowell and Rachel (Slane) Maxwell from Min- nesota, North Dakota, Col- orado, Wyoming, Montana, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Arizona, Louisiana, New Mexico, New York, Kansas, New Jersey, Nebraska, Cali- fornia, Alaska, Australia and Mexico attended. Guests stayed in the Corbett Hall on the campus of Col- orado State University. Activities included a bagpipe and Scotish dance program, picnic lunch at Red Feather Lakes and at Lee and Barbara Maxwell's nursery near Eaton, CO. Another reunion is planned for 1991. On pages 264-65 of the Shelby-Audubon History (Harian Community Library has a copy) it tells about the early schools in Harlan and concludes the article with this descrip- tion, "In 1881 the beautiful high school building was com- pleted. It was erected by S. Bryan at a cost of $18,000. It is a three story building divided into 9 departments, is of the most modern design throughout and steam heated. (One janitor has been employed at $40 per month and through his excellent management, the building, engine and heating appliances have been kept in good repair." The enrollment in 1888 was 625 scholars.) From the Harlan Newspaper Centennial Special Edition on July 2, 1979 edited and prepared by Alan Mores, we read that "on April 19, 1915, a bond issue was passed to build a new high school ($90,000) and an elementary building ($30,000). The first day of classes in the New Central High School and Laurel Elementary School were held on Sept. 25, 1916." The old Central building had been torn down and the new Central had been erected on the same spot. So that's how it was, folks. I hope this answers some of your questions. We're glad you are interested in the history of our county. Let's keep up that interest and I'll B .CN-U!
