  1. 1960-61 7th grade, my classroom (other grades were there also) was the porch of the new one room school which made it a two room school. The large addition was added that summer and 8th grade was in the new addition and the porch classroom was restored to a porch. Yes, that porch was small! Our teacher had to turn sideways to walk to the front of the class and she threw stuff at those who weren’t paying attention. She was a professional softball player also. The teacher’s desk was at the back of the “class room”; chalk board on the “front wall” … map of the world on the ceiling. Thanks, Janine (Freels) Caudle, for helping jog my memory! 🙂

  2. I went to the Imnaha school back in 1978-79. We had Mr. Finch as one of the teachers and His Daughter Brenda her two girls, Chemae and Tiffany; Joe and Dan Warnock; Jeff and Ryan Thornton; Julie Borgeding; Debbie Davis; Vicki Scott; my brother Orlan Gould, Mike Jones not sure about the younger ones back then. I believe there was 15 in the school in 78.

  3. How fun to see and recognize some of the faces in these pictures. Thanks for setting up this site.

  4. Hi, I’m with Oregon Public Broadcasting and we’re working on a series called “On the Road” in which we visit small towns throughout Oregon and feature interesting people and things about these small towns for our listening audience. We are going to be on the road from Enterprise to Joseph and will definitely be looking at extending our travel to Imnaha. I’d love to have a chance to talk with someone further about this show and the possibility of coming to Imnaha. I can be reached via my email at Thanks for any information you can give me! My best!
