State’s 1st Lady visits Reed School


Jessica Doyle (second from right), wife of Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle, visited the Reed School east of Neillsville last week.  The one-room school house was recently dedicated as the State Historical Society’s 10th historic site.  Welcoming the First Lady to the century-old school building were Dale Williams (right) of the Historical Society, Amy Zoschke (second from left), the school’s interpreter and Linda (Suchow) Grottke (left), a former student of the school that was closed in 1951.  The Reed School continues to be open to the public on both Saturday and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until the end of September.  Zoschke is on hand to give tours and answer questions from visitors.  There is no charge for admission.  (Contributed photo) .
