School for the Lewis children in Carbonado, Washington

Richard and Sarah (Betts) Lewis moved to Carbonado, Washington in about 1891. At that time, their children Justin "Jess", Ethelbert "Bert" and Bessie would have been about age 5, 7, and 8. The 1900 Census indicates that they were all "at school" during the previous year.

The Carbonado School District has placed a brief history of the town and school on-line. Included is a photo of the original schoolhouse, built in 1881, and probably attended by the Lewis children.
