Then and Now – student transportation


Then – This is a 1915 photo (CCHS #2001) of 10 horse-drawn school wagons in front of the Rosewood (Harrison-Adams Township) School in Adams Township. Based on other photos of horse-drawn school wagons, each wagon probably held 10-12 students. Horse-drawn school wagons were mostly superseded by gasoline-powered buses by about 1920. The Champaign County Historical Society thanks Deb Lewis of the Rosewood Grocery for sharing this photo.
