Couple remembers Slough School in 1940s
Eugene Taylor has lived on South Butte Road in Sutter County his whole life and still remembers what life was like at the landmark Slough School.
"The kids would come and play in my yard because the school didn't have any toys," Taylor said. "No baseballs. Not even a bat."
Taylor attended the one-room schoolhouse from 1940 to '48. He said recess was unusual but, due to the small size of the school, so was moving up a grade. "As you got older, you went from one side of the building to the other," Taylor said.
Taylor's wife, Glenda, also attended Slough School at about the same time.
"It was funny," she said. "We had the smaller kids behind us, so when we got older, we taught the other kids."
The Taylors are glad their old elementary school apparently isn't getting torn down, and said they would like to one day see it become a historical landmark.
